District Camp 2011

It was an enjoyable weekend at the district camp held at our district campsite based at the Chris Coxon Centre in Coombe Farm, Croydon, from 28-30 May 2011.

It was nice to see a good turnout of Cubs, Scouts and Explorers who had a lot of fun and started to complete their Athletes badge, as the theme of the weekend was the Olympics. 

The whole weekend was packed with various activities such as fire lighting, wide games and (of course) a toasty campfire with camp skits. 
The weather was very kind to us all weekend, until we set off to go home!

Well done to all of the leaders and helpers who made the weekend a huge success!
