This year’s Winter Camp took 45 of us to Downe Scout Activity Centre in Kent, where we all enjoyed a mixture of both on and off-site activities, in the bright, cold and crisp countryside.

Despite being quite short, it was a packed weekend, with Scouts taking part in a half day of Arial Trekking and Zip Wires, and a half day visit to the Scout Aviation Centre at Biggin Hill, looking at some of the old World War bunkers, getting up close and personal with some of the many aircraft onsite, and taking to the skies in the fabulous onsite SAC COMET 4 Flight Simulator. (Many thanks to the guys at Biggin Hill Scout Aviation Centre)

And of course to cap it all off, we had our Winter Camp Christmas Party with a full roast turkey dinner – and pudding, and an evening’s fun and games!

The following morning we packed up and left site, and traveled to Chislehurst, where we toured the vast underground Cave System by the light of old-fashioned oil lamps, before heading on back up the motorway to grab lunch and return home.
