Winter Camp - Windermere


18 Scouts took part in the 2011 winter camp, which took place at Waterside Wood alongside Lake Windermere from 28 - 30 January.

There was a full programme of activities both on-site and off-site. At Waterside Wood there were challenge bases involving raft building, a string trail and fire lighting with a twist. On Saturday afternoon the Patrols went searching for Geocaches in the Grasmere area with our newly acquired GPS's. On Saturday night there was the now traditional 'Space Quest' wide game at Great Tower Scout Camp in the dark!

On Sunday the Scouts tackled the low ropes assault course at GT, which turned out to be rather challenging. A further wide game finalised proceedings.

The weather was very favourable. On Saturday the views over Windermere and Grasmere were superb although it was very cold throughout.

An enjoyable camp in beautiful surroundings.
