Great time had by all at our group camp at Lochter

Date: 26th Sep 2019 Author: Jane THOMSON

Westhill Scout Group had a fantastic weekend at Lochter Activity Centre by Oldmeldrum for our annual group camp.

Around 65 Beavers, Cubs and Scouts, a small army of leaders and adult helpers plus terrific weather made for an unforgettable weekend.

The youngsters enjoyed activities such as archery, segways, water zorbing, target shooting, fishing, 4×4 driving, zipline, assault course, go-karting, a 2km water/mud run, campfire, wood branding, digger operating and bouncy inflatables!

Many of the youngsters earned badges by being at the camp including “Nights Away”   “Adventurous Activities” and “Team Challenge” badges. Well done to them.

Our thanks, as always, go to Sandy and his fab team at Lochter for allowing us to camp and enjoy their facilities. Everyone had a brilliant time.

These events are made possible through the work of our leaders, who give up their time each week and for overnight events such as this to ensure each child had a great time. A massive thank you to them too.

Our next big group camp will be in May 2020 which will be our biennial Family Camp, where all families will be invited to attend. Look our for details from your child’s leader in the coming months.

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
