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