Lads & Dads Camp 25-27th September


Another weekend packed with fun, challenge and adventure held on the Chatsworth estate.  The lads and dads took part in a cycling challenge, a rugby challenge, non stop cricket, built ballistas, built a large camp fire, air rifle shooting, peg and wine bottle challenges and so much more.

The highlight for many on Saturday night was watching the England Wales Rugby match on a large screen sat around the camp fire!

The competition was a tie for first place which went down to the very last activity – Horse Shoe Hoopla! Congratulations to the Chennerys and the Houltons crowned champion lad and dad 2015.

And a big thank you to all the leaders who made the weekend possible – and the the family of Fred May (Former Group Chairman) whose legacy was spent on a new gate into the field.
