Joint Camp with 9th Bracknell Scouts
Scouts from 9th Bracknell and 2nd Easthampstead got to know each other at the weekend on a camp at Bears Rails campsite.
Activities included a hike to the site, making hobo stoves and a real test of their knots and lashings when they made rafts and then sailed across the pond to tie more knots on the other side. Fortunately, the knots held fast and no one got wet! A huge thanks to Clive Pierce for giving up his Saturday to oversee this activity and for providing the buoyancy aids and helmets.
They finished the weekend by hiking home to Bracknell. There were a few tired Scouts (and leaders) but all agreed that this was the first of many joint ventures.
On a cold weekend in January some of us went camping at Gilwell park camp site. Everyone had great fun.
