Beavers Cubs Scouts Explorers

Explorer Camp

 

The Explorers visited the Craigs campsite Friday night as part of the Zodiac Challenge (6 Nights Away, in each of the seasons, each time camping with a new challenge). Given the weather the previous week, we were hopeful to complete the sub-zero challenge (camping in temperatures below 0c) but the recorded temperature remained a stubborn 1c. Very cold, but not cold enough!.

Instead the Explorer’s camped in our groups Tipi Style tents, completing the “In an unusual tent” challenge.

The explorers had a good time learning core camping skills including building and starting a fire when wood is very wet, cooking on an open fire and how to work with axes and saws on a campsite.

We also had time to help a out of doors first aid training course by being “casualties”.
