Just in Time
The 12th Scout Group had their first Group Camp at Kettleness where all 3 sections turned up and had an excellent time . Little did we know at the time that this may be the last one of 2020.
Scouts turned up on Friday night and started to Pitch their tents in the challenging wind at Kettleness.
Cubs had it easy turn up and unpack their sleeping bags !
Once all settled in both Cubs and Scouts had free time to explore their surroundings on the site,
Hot Dogs for supper and a few brain games in the activity hut on site and we were done, Off to bed and thinking of whats in store for tomorrow.
The morning came and the Cubs were on it !!! Breakfast was being made in the kitchen and a few were helping the Leaders out with cooking. Scouts on the other hand were still in their tents zedding it !, The Scout Leaders we circling the tents listening to the snoring from the tents and the hunger rumble from their own stomachs.
The Scouts were challenged that they would be cooking all their meals and the Scouts Leaders whilst on camp. Clock watching we (the leaders started to make some noise! we were Hungry!!!). Success was on the cards as the Scouts started to venture from their sleeping bags, whats for Breakfast one calls to me, whatever you cook i reply with a hungry look.
They did it we had breakfast and on all accounts it was really good. Many a afternoon spent back at our scout meeting place and doing various cooking challenges had paid off.
Onto the first activity, the Beavers were due to be on site from lunch time and we had a task for the Cubs and Scouts to build an assault course for Beavers.
The Cubs and Scouts worked as a team putting the assault course together and the Beavers had a great time completing the course.
The Cubs set up a tracking course for the Beavers to follow and the Scouts organised an Orienteering Course for all.
The activities came and went and we all had a great time.
The evening activity was of course the campfire with songs and skits.
As Sunday came it was much as the same this time the Beavers & Cubs waiting for Breakfast and Scouts Leaders waiting for theirs outside!!!
We finished the camp with a good old fashioned Tug-o-War of which i believe the Beavers won !!
We Train them from an early stage at the 12th.
We all had a great time and im sure we will do it all again some time soon.
