District Camp Fire

The Beavers behaved beautifully and joined in well when they met up with the rest of the Leighton-Linslade District at the annual Beavers Camp Fire on Thursday 13th October 2011.

Scouts Winter Camping at -6 Degrees!

Another successful Winter Camp at Tolmers Scout Camp near Cuffley saw overnight temperatures down to minus six degrees! All Scouts and leaders coped very well and a fun packed weekend was had by all. Indeed it was a bit chilly, but there was less mud than on previous years – mud is definitely better when frozen!!!

There were lots of activities available to keep everyone busy including, archery, air rifles, climbing walls, laser tag, quad bikes, dodgems, waltzer, crazy golf, and loads more……

Despite the cold temperatures there were plenty of smiling faces – nobody complained of being cold! Our spirits were kept high by a very cheery leadership team, and our bellies well stoked with excellent hot meals supplied by Mark and his catering crew.

Our party of 73 was our biggest Winter Camp yet and we were pleased to share it with, our friends from Liphook Explorers, 124th Nottingham, and Heath & Reach Scouts. With Buzzards Scouts camping just across the field from us it was a great friendly weekend. Thank you all for you help and friendship.

Special thanks to Mark for master-minding the food, and all leaders and adult helpers for your support. You made it happen again!!
