This year’s camp took us back to Biblin’s – a great site on the banks of the River Wye, near Monmouth.
Having set-up the camp we spent the first couple of days honing our kayaking skills, first with a down-river trip to Monmouth, then up-river to practise ferry-gliding at the base of the Symond’s Yat rapids. On the third day it was time to face the rapids itself – a short, but exhilarating trip!
By mid-week it was time to turn our attention to land-based activities, challenging ourselves with with a ropes course.
We also found time for games, hikes, star-gazing and cooking – including home-made pizzas in cardboard ovens.
A great time had by all – thanks to all Scouts, Explorers, Young Leaders and Leaders for making it so.
