Camping

Who loves camping! – from the first sleep-over through to Jamborees of 10,000 scouts camping is the way scouts get into nature and the outdoors to explore everything on offer.  Pitching tents, lighting gas stoves, cooking marshmallows are great skills to learn – and its all pretty simple to pick a spot and then hit the road.
