Thurs Summer Camps
August 9th – 23rd 2014
Our 2 week summer camp will be on the banks of Poole Harbour in Dorset on the Isle of Purbeck, close to Swanage. Our site is set in acres of private land and is right next to an old clay pit outdoor pool ideal for swimming, canoeing, rafting and rope bridges.
Summer camp is what being in Scouts is all about – to miss it is to miss out on so much that being in the Troop is all about.
In addition to the activities above, we will be camping in tents, cooking on fires, learning new survival skills and bivouacking as well as visiting local beaches and trips out to Brownsea Island – the home of the very first Scout camp. Plus a trip to one of the UK’s biggest water slide parks!
A brilliant 2 weeks of adventure, camping in Cornwall. The beach and the body boarding was great and we all completed the RLNI / ASA safe swimming award. Visits to Big Sheep and Tintagel, coastal walks, jumping pit, crabbing, canal jumping,sports, canoe trips on the canal to the Bude sea lock and loads of sunshine meant a fantastic camp.
Well done to all the Scouts who went who gained their Scout Award and the following activity awards: meteorology;basic nautical skills and canoe paddling.
