Westernöhe, Germany – Summer Camp 2019

Date: 26th Sep 2019 Author: Carl Reeder

MC Reese’s puffs & Lil Spence camping 24/7 all night lads.

Camp salute
camp at ease
this camp has been a breeze.

OK lets go with the start,

left the scout hut by quarter past seven
Got on the boat and slept around Eleven
Early in the morning we got out of bed
And in my opinion, my eyes felt like lead.

Then we were on the bus for 6 annoying hours.
I needed a pee, which was a big oof for me
A wasp came in and I thought it was a bee
Sienna started calling everyone a G.

Finally we got to our campsite
Set up the tents before we lost the light.
Pull up the flag neatly
And don’t let it get stuck
Do it quickly.

We had fun with the activities
And the foreign festivities
Eating the food
Put me in in a good mood

Sitting around the campfire
On a big bench
Foreigners all around
Especially the French.

The Germans were loud
The Israelis were proud
And we were trying to fit in the crowd.
Having a good time around
Just listening to the campfires crackling sound.

Now we are on the ferry and almost home
But I won’t forget my time at Westernohe.

Shout out to Ellie’s hat
Shout out to Mike’s rice pudding
Shout out to the canoeing trio aka the Sparks
Shout out to all the leaders and parents who came and helped
Especially Carl aka Reader Leader
Shout out to Carwyn’s chin.

Now if you don’t mind
I’m gonna put this in the bin.

Summary of events

As out trip has sadly come to an end, we’d like to reflect on all the activities we have participated in. Here is a list of things we got up to during the week.


Minibus to the ferry. This experience was the first for many.


We drove for hours and set up camp.


Made gadgets, branded and became familiar with eh site.


We visited a town and a cave. Walked to lake and went swimming. We had a massive campfire with Scout Groups from all over the world.


We had a full day of canoeing and then had to catch the train back to our minibuses


Involved us cooking breakfast for a French group who then joined in some activities who then later cooked us lunch


Was a new experience for all of us as we were put into groups that included many people from different nations who came from all over the world to take part in a number of games. Also in the evening the older scouts went on a Scout Expedition.


Was an eventful day. As the older scouts arrived early back from their expedition we went tree climbing and then swimming. Carwyn split his chin open on a kiddy slide. We then started to pack up.


Busses for most of it. More busses. Lunch. Busses. BEACH! Busses, Ferry, Wow!

Over the days we have had a rollercoaster of a journey and though sad for it to all end, happy to see our families and sleep in our own beds.

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