2022-04-01 – Easter Camp @ Thriftwood

Having booked this camp for Easter 2020, it was a matter of changing the list of attendees and a new risk assessment.  7 leaders arrived at camp @13:00 to get set up and shop for the food, with 35 Explorers and Scouts arriving from 6pm to the first supper of 1/4lb burgers, followed later by cake and hot chocolate.  Saturday morning started early with porridge, cereal and bacon sandwiches, followed with 3hours of crate stacking, leap of faith and zip wire activities before a lunch of sandwiches, soup, crisps and fruit.  After lunch everyone went on a pre-planned hike in groups, which took @3hrs. Saturday’s evening meal consisted of Spaghetti Bolognaise and garlic bread.  Temperatures plummeted on Saturday night, so it was good forethought that we had booked ‘The Village’ at Thriftwood, which consists of heated huts and a fully equipped tented kitchen and dining area, although 8 Explorers and 5 leaders still preferred being under canvas, but everyone arose well slept, even the explorers who had spent most of the night at around the campfire. Breakfast on Sunday was again cereals followed by a cooked breakfast of sausages, baked beans and eggy bread, which went down very well. Activities on Sunday consisted of fields games, rounders, an Easter egg hunt and the all-important trip to the providor to load upon confectionary and camp souvenirs. At the end of camp, we awarded some prizes for various activities and issued everyone with a camp badge for their camp blanket and dismissed promptly at 15:00. Despite the weather being fresh, we were lucky to escape rain and saw much blue sky; looking forward to the next camp already…..
