Report: Summer Camp 2014

For Summer Camp 2014 we returned to Downe Scout Activity Centre near Biggin Hill.

Being on the doorstep of Down House, former home of Charles Darwin, our theme was the naturalist’s badge but there was plenty of time for the usual camp fires, wide games and on site activities too. It was a level 3 camp as we slept in tents.

Summer Camp is always in the same week in mid-August. This year we started on the afternoon of Sunday 10 August and ran through until 5.30pm on Wednesday 13 August. We would normally camp for the whole week but unfortunately only had 5 Cubs wanting to do that bit which was not enough to make it viable.

Our guest list was:

  • 15 Cubs – Grace, Lauren, Zack, Adam M, Jake, Ollie, Gareth, Olivia, James, Lily, Luke P, Adam S, Alex, Holly and Harry
  • Helpers camping – Tabaqui
  • Adults camping – Akela, Jacala, Marian, Kelly (Sun), Hathi (Mon-Wed), Kaa (Tue)

At the end of the camp we had some goodbyes to say as Akela, Zack, Jake and James would not be with us when term started again in September.
