On the Saturday, scouts enjoyed whittling a butter spreader, cooking on a fire without utensils, shelter building, air rifle target shooting, archery and tomahawk throwing.  In the evening, there were games and of course, a traditional campfire.

On Sunday there was a ‘scouts own’ reflection followed by sports including KUBB Challenge, rounders, hockey, dodgeball, ultimate frisbee, badminton and tug of war.

The Scouts also learned general camping skills such as cooking and setting up tents.
