Almost all the bacon has gone, the bread is just about finished and the fruit bowl is empty. It can only mean one thing... 30 very tired but happy scouts and explorers packing up camp! Planning to get to marsh street at 4pm but will update when we are closer.

Today we have been back on the water again with 3 sessions of rowing and sailing. Everyone has made great progress and we have some great sailors in the group. Particularly well done to those who did backwards sailing and the man overboard drills. As for rowing we have had trips to the other side of the reservoir for ice creams, races and even tug of war...
Tomorrow the scouts have high ropes and the explorers are windsurfing. Now though they are all in bed!

The Explorers completed their cycle around the lake, complete with lunch delivered by boat. Scouts enjoying windsurfing and all earned their pulling badge. The aqua park later in the evening was great fun too.
Today we are back on the water sailing and rowing but off slightly early for our Christmas party

Actually Summer Camp 2016 all started on the August bank holiday weekend last year when we went to look for a suitable campsite. Now however it's really started.
This last week has seen bearings replaced on road trailers, toppers and topaz all re rigged and loaded, patrol tents taken out and checked, benches mended, water sessions and menus planned, 300 cable ties bought and shopping started. Now we're off to load the vans.
It's a smaller camp this year than last year with 30 Scouts / Explorers and about 20 helpers. Rutland water sports centre are working with us, letting us use their campsite and launch the boats. We even have use of their showers... It should be a great week!
