Summer Camp 2015


Summer camp 2015 was a repeat of a great camp in 2010

We returned to Scout Centrum, a scout camp site on the outskirts of Rotterdam in Holland for a week of fun-packed activities.

We were joined by Explorer Scouts from Discovery and Pioneer Explorer Units and Scouts from the 2nd Attenborough Scout Group.

We biked to Gouda, about an hours cycle ride away  (and NO hills), where we savoured the local cheese and embraced many of the wonderful sights.

We took part in great dutch sport of Fierljeppen (pole vaulting over !!!!!!!! streams and canals)
