December Camp 2012

The Scouts braved the cold weather to camp and hike at the weekend.

Eight Scouts from the troop camped in the Scout Hut for the weekend.  Aside from camping, games and cooking and the ubiquitous washing up, the Scouts went for an eight mile hike on Saturday from Didcot back to the hall in Abingdon.  They were left to navigate themselves between checkpoints and they all seemed to have a whale of a time.  The route is shown on the Google map below.

On Saturday evening, there was a lot of baking: home-made pizzas for dinner and cakes for the church members to eat after the service on Sunday.  The Scouts attended a Christmas church parade in the church on Sunday and learnt about the Christmas story in the Launch group.

After a hearty lunch of soup and sausage sandwiches, the Scouts cleared up, played games and went home happy. A great weekend for all.

There was a points competition for the 3 patrols that were on camp. The results were:

1st: “Insert name here”
2nd: “Bob Marley’s husband”
3rd: “We like trains custard”

Please excuse the names, the Scouts came up with them themselves.
