Beavers Camps Cubs Executive Explorers News Scouts Squirrels

Group Camp 2023 @ Lislagan Farm

Ballymoney Scout Group enjoyed an all section camp at the weekend. Smallest squirrels (4 year olds) to our tallest explorers (17 year olds) and leaders/network/executive helpers took part!

Friday – Cubs, Scouts and Explorers arrived on site and listened to camp rules. Scout sections worked on pioneering wash stands. Explorers discussed DofE for September, cooked and sampled different ration packs on a jet boil. Cubs enjoyed a movie in the Hen Hoose.

Saturday – relaxing morning, then Beavers and squirrels arrived just after lunch time. Phoenix Explorers and some scouts helped to set up camp for the wee ones. Busy day doing crafts, bouncy castle, face painting, laser tag and team games. BBQ for dinner then Squirrels enjoyed a mini campfire before heading home. Main campfire led by our fabulous explorers (renamed Phoenix entertainers by our Beavers) with campfire cones, songs, skits, dancing and singalong!

Sunday – Breakfast then pack up before wacky relay races 😂😂

Well done to all the young people, your behaviour on camp was exceptional!

A HUGE well done to our older sections for all their help and entertainment throughout the weekend. You guys are awesome 😎

Again, massive thanks to Lislagan Farm for allowing us to camp at their farm. Also to all the volunteer leaders and executive. Well done to our newest section leaders (squirrels) for getting stuck in 🌟

Also thanks to #limitless for running laser tag. Thanks to a friend of the group for a donation of £40 towards food.
