85th Scouts 

In August the 85th Inverkip & Wemyss Bay Scouts were delighted to hold their first summer camp since 2019. 

The Troop camped at a national scout adventure centre in the Lake District for a week For the first time that any leader can remember, there wasn’t a drop of rain for the whole camp and the Scouts made the most of the sunshine. 

 

 

 

They spent the week cooking their own meals on open fires and trying out activities including powerboating, crate climbing, paddleboarding and canoeing. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The braver ones climbed high up a tree before jumping out of it to try to catch a swinging trapeze in an activity called ‘leap of faith’. 

In a break with tradition, the camp was held later in the summer when the English schools were also on holiday. This meant that they got to meet Scouts from down South and pick up some new campfire songs from them. 

On the days off activities, the group had a tour inside an old slate mine and finished the week with a trip to Blackpool Pleasure Beach.
