This years Family Camp was held over the weekend of the 22nd, 23rd and 24th June 2012. Although there have been some changes amongst the Leaders everything was much as it usually was. Mark and Chris did a great job organising the camp and we had a very good new team running the catering. Thanks very much to everyone who helped make the weekend such a success.
The Explorers held went hiking on Dartmoor again this Easter. They had five groups walking with a fantastic total of 22 Explorer Scouts taking part in the hikes. Well done to all of them. We are lucky enough to have a few photo’s from their trip.
Another very successful family camp in glorious sunshine. We had the usual numbers of about 120 camping and this year, the Annual General Meeting was held at the camp. I am sure that you will agree a great time was had by all.
Over the weekend of the 27th to the 29th November 2009, Simeon ran a Christmas camp at Lees Wood Scout camp site. There were lots of activities and even a Christmas dinner with turkey and all the trimmings!
14 Cubs went on Cub camp this year. They all had a great time and the weather was good too, as you can see from the photo’s.
We had another very successful Family Camp over the weekend of the 26th, 27th and 28th of June at Bears Rails Scout Camp in Windsor Great Park. We had glorious weather for all three days and everyone had a great time. We also held our Annual General Meeting at the camp and special thanks go to those people who volunteered to help to run the Group.
7 of our Scouts were joined by a Scout from 6th Hillingdon for Canoe Camp over the weekend of the 13th/14th June 2009. All the Scouts passed their Paddle Power Passport in glorious sunshine as you can see from the photo’s. Sroll down to find the video’s of the Scouts launching their kayaks down the slide straight into the River Thames.
The Explorers travelled down to Hampshire early in the morning on a very frosty but lovely and sunny day. As you can see the weather was perfect for hot air ballooning.
This year saw our numbers increase yet again with approximately 180 campers plus various day visitors etc. 2nd Uxbridge seems to get more popular every year.
Summer camp this year was the wettest in memory for all of us. This July had the greatest rainfall since records began in 1766. All the Scouts had a great time even so enjoying the many activities arranged which included horse riding and a visit to Alton Towers.
