Chapman and Swift Troops both went hiking for chips this week.
They started from Old Soar Manor, close to Plaxtol Spout and hiked north, roughly following the River Bourne
The walk on Tuesday was difficult, early delays in leaving together with fog and rain turned it into a bit of a slog, however on Friday the weather was fantastic, with clear sky, full moon and slightly frosty underfoot. Scouts walked in small groups doing their own navigation with everyone getting to the chip shop on time and some even (deliberately) choosing more adventurous routes!
Both scout troops have been away on Christmas Camp, which was held at Waylands Scout Camp nr South Street.
We tried out two battery powered spit-roasts which we fitted to our altar fires for the first time. We gave them a work out with Turkey for the Christmas dinner on Saturday and roast pork in a bun on Sunday.
Apart from eating we managed to fit in some seasonal activities
Rope swing making
Christmas tree making
We also managed to invest two new scouts! but we forgot to take photos
