Each year we plan a camp for the older Scouts and Explorers.
The aim is to do something slightly different.
This year we packed our rucksacks and headed on a trip to the South Coast. 19 brave Scouts & Explorers were up for the challenge.
On Friday night, we bussed into Bournemouth and parked up, then it was public transport all the way. Tents and cooking equipment were shared out and after a quick trip to Asda and McDonalds, we caught the bus to Butchers Coppice and we were on our way.
We camped in a corner, in our small hike tents. After a reasonable nights sleep, we packed up and caught our 2nd bus of the weekend to Poole.
After some exploring of Poole High Street, we headed to Sainsbury’s to buy our food for the next 24 hours. We then carried our food to Poole Quay for lunch and headed out of the harbour on the ferry boat, arriving at Brownsea Island shortly after.
We then spent an enjoyable 20 hours on the island exploring. In all we walked 10 miles this day, with some heavy rucksacks, so well done to all.
On Sunday, we headed home with a boat trip around the harbour and a celebratory lunch in Weatherspoons !
A great weekend.
