May and of we went to Youlbury, that is 23 Scouts and 5 leaders, settling in we wandered the camp before game time, supper and relax round the camp fire. Saturday and the Scouts decided to wake the leaders – well two of us, by 6.10 am, At this point we discovered we had been robbed – that is by squirrels who in the night had run of and eaten four bags of our waffles! After breakfast it was time for our take on the Olympics , three teams taking part in events as diverse as team Gymnastics, team synchronised swimming and horse racing. After lunch and a shop visit it was time for either zip wire and all aboard, back for afternoon cakes then tea, making the best of what they are given is the best description. Eating competition time, funny to watch not to take part. More games and then camp fire and story time, singing and more games, Stuart style. relax time before the rain came down , so a little earlier to bed.
The rain certainly came down in the night and during the morning but we kept going, filling the van with what we could before the Scouts went either to archery or Jacobs ladder, then the sun came out and we could finally brake the tents down after lunch, just as the heavens open. anyway I think all the Scouts enjoyed it. Thanks to Stuart, Adam, Otter, Akela and the return of Hawk
