Camp Skills Day

on

IMG_1402The day started by helping local residents with a clean-up in Macosquin village; this goes towards the Global Challenge.

Then over to Kevin’s house for a day of camp skills including putting up tents, setting the site, collecting fire wood, using axes and bow saws, lighting fires with some backwoods cooking. Chocolate cake was on hand for afternoon tea, as the Scouts and Explorers enjoyed the sunshine. Then a few more practical skills of using Tilly lamps and stoves, before heading off to Downhill Beach for a mad and sandy game of rugby.

Once back, supper was had, flasks were sorted and gear packed for a short hike to the bivi site where the scouts and explorers would bed down for the night under the stars.

After a windy but dry night back down the hill for bacon butties, hot chocolate and the cartoon network.
