Group Camp 2012

We held our Olympic-themed group camp on 6-8th July.

Each of our 10 ‘country’ teams consisted of beavers, cubs and scouts and competed in a wide variety of events including

  • Tent pitching against the clock
  • Water challenge (and not just the weather)
  • Tug-of-war tournament
  • Track events
  • Field events
  • Royal Tournament go-cart challenge
  • Shooting

At the end it was still very close, finishing with Australia at the head of the medals table, followed by Great Britain and Germany.
