We will spend a day fire lighting, some backwoods cooking and other camping skills. This day will be particularly useful for those doing Adkin Camping Challenge later in the month.  In that camp you are lighting your own fires and cooking on them. We will provide food for them to cook a lunch. Also those doing the Adkin Camping Challenge – we will agree your menu for the weekend.  So come along with ideas of what you will cook.  Saturday evening meal should be three courses, the main course plus one other should be hot. The theme is “Goodbye to the E.U.”.  For the other meals – you just need to keep within the budget. Please drop and collect at Frylands main car park.  This location changed on 5 June, plus makes it much easier for us all. Wear: Own clothes Scout Scarf Bring: Water bottle Waterproof coat Sun lotion Hat No cost for this event. Please hand in a completed Activity Information Form.  It is particularly important we know of any dietary needs.Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Google+ (Opens in new window)Click to email this to a friend (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)MoreClick to share on Pinterest (Opens in new window)Click to share on Tumblr (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)

Scouts are responsible for erecting and taking down their own tents, cooking their own meals and maintaining their campsites, which includes fetching wood and water, looking after the campfire and keeping their equipment clean and their kit tidy and organised. In addition, teams participate in a schedule of activities as well as a cooking competition. Teamwork, leadership, timekeeping and organisation are essential for surviving the challenge. As well as building #skillsforlife there is fun.  There are games, wide game and a camp fire.  The Scouts that went last year varied from 10 to 13 years old and throughly enjoyed it.  They left feeling proud and a huge sense of achievement. Is my Scout ready? We are building up skills over the term.  Our Scouts are caring and supportive of each other.  Combined they make an awesome team.  Plus they are not alone.  The District team will keep a close eye on them and offer advice where appropriate.  Less experienced teams are directly supported by a Young Leader or adult. Every Scout in our troops is able to take part.
