    Summer Camp 2010 – Day One

    Filed under: Camps; Tagged as: ,

    Summer Camp 2010 was the first summer camp for 15th North Baddesley Scout troop for about 3 years. The Camp was held at Broad Stone Warren in East Sussex, its a massive scout campsite with lots of onsite activities.

    Everyone meet up at the Scout Hut on the Sunday to get ready for the journey to the site.  First things first we had to pack the Van! wow that van was packed full of ALOT of stuff for the week.  The Scouts and the Explorers by chance were on camp at the same time meaning that there was alot of equipment to be packed.

    It was then time for the two hour trip to East Sussex.  Unfortunately the mini bus that we were borrowing was unable to make it.  But as good scouts we were “kind of” prepared for this meaning that the Scouts travelled in cars upto the site (Thanks to John for helping carrying them).

    We all managed to arrive on site within about 20 minutes of each other which was fantastic timing.  After booking in we could make our way to the site that was luckly near the main site entrance and near the main area of the site.  When I say near it was still about half mile round trip to the toliet!!!  With all the equipment unloaded from the van it was all hands to the pump to get the site setup for the week of camping.  With mess tents, patrol tents and dining shelters to be setup before night fall it was a large task ahead of us.

    As the tents were being setup and the dining shelters / store tents sorted out it was almost time for dinner that was being cooked centrally tonight.  With Pasta bolognese and desert there was some free time to go off and explorer the site / play games or just relax under the shelters.

    With day one drawing to a close it was an 11pm lights out ready for an early 7.30am start the next day and all the activities that were planned.
