Group Camp at Lapwing for the 10th

Last weekend Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorers, Young leaders and Leaders from the 10th held a group camp at Lapwing Lodge.

They enjoyed lots of activities in the sun on Saturday. The Scouts went offsite on a hike whilst the Beavers and Cubs explored in the woods whilst playing lots of games along the way.

Beavers and Cubs took part in team games including a relay race style Lapwing Lodge mud run created by cub leader Mark.


All sections went off on a scavenger hunt with the Beavers completing their photography badge along the way before the scouts did training with axes and saws. Meanwhile, the Beavers and Cubs had some free time, so went climbing trees, playing in the woods and had a quick game of football.

In the evening, there was a group quiz before the Scouts and Explorers entertained the group by the campfire.


The rain came on Sunday but it didn’t dampen spirits with the Scouts striking camp and doing a tree trail whilst the Beavers and Cubs tidied up the lodge before some indoor games and challenges run by the young leaders.

A great time was had by all and our thanks goes to Alison and Joyce who cooked all weekend, to our two young leaders Kieran and Stewart and all the staff at Lapwing Lodge for their assistant this weekend.
