18th Ipswich Easter Themed Group Camp – Fri 15th to Sun 17th March 2013

The Thriftwood Camp was a massive success.

The weather was not great (lots of mud!) but it didn’t affect the activities that we did or the fun had by all. We had 13 Scouts, 19 Cubs attend for the whole weekend and then 5 Beavers on the Saturday for the day.

Five of our Explorers attended to assist with the camp and they were all an asset as they helped with all of the activities.

We did a variety of activities including rifles, inflata Bull, cresta run, pedal cars, 3D maze, water walkers and climbing, just to mention a few.

The help of the catering team that included Denise, Colin, Michael, Teresa and Sue was fantastic. They provided an excellent service to everyone and the food was brilliant.

18th Ipswich Easter Themed Group Camp – Fri 15th to Sun 17th March 2013

Our group has recently benefited from a grant award to help facilitate a group camp. The planned camp will be significantly subsidised and be available to all members of our Scout group. To my knowledge no other group is benefiting from such an award.

The proposition made by myself to the grant provider was to arrange a camp that would be a memorable experience for every child within the group.
