As our journey is well under way, it’s time for me to hand over the Blog duties to our awesome young people, Daisy, Emily & Leo.


1st Shipley

This weekend we had our second camp at 1st Shipley Scout ground near Horsham.

Prior to this camp we have been told to buddy up with a fellow scout who we had to share a tent with. One of us had to bring a tent whilst the other had to bring a cake to share with the Wasps (our unit ).  



On arrival at camp we had to pitch our tents. After 30 min of trying and us all helping each other we eventually got them all up.

Then it was cake time!

With tummies full of cake the next adventure was to work out the walking route from the Scout ground to South Water Co-op. We also had to plan our food for a 2 course dinner. 

Whilst we were all busy planning Jacky decided that she would break a fence post by taking a well earned rest!! 

Lunch which was wraps with a variety of fillings of our choice. After lunch was finished we got our new UK scarfs. 

Then it was time for the hike – during our hike we met up with every leader to take a snazzy photo with them  to prove we didn’t get lost.

Once we arrived at the Co-op we brought our ingredients and started on our route back. 

When we got back to the Scout hut we had to cook our dinner and pudding to share with one of our leaders. Every patrol cooked something different and it was amazing to see everyones food creations. After cleaning and washing up it was time to start the campfire.

One of the participants brought their ukulele and we sang along to a variety of songs.

Soon it was time to go to bed but not one of us got any sleep as it was freezing cold and we had a unit DJ with us. 

On the 2nd day of camp we woke up and had a choice of pancakes or bacon for breakfast.

After a delicious breakfast it was time to pack up and do activities which included a discussion about what we liked and disliked about the camp and what we would like to do in future camps.

After a lovely few days with our new friends it was time to say goodbye and leave.

We would like to say a massive thank you to the leaders for the camp that they organised and we do appreciate all their hard work.
