17 Scouts and 5 Leaders went to Ark Lane near Southend to have a look around and this is what we did…

Friday night: Learnt how to tie super-fast shoe laces, how to read people, planned our menus and climbed on a bouldering wall.

We then did a laser challenge before having burgers and soup.

Saturday: Got up, cooked our own fry-up, Went to the planetarium, learn about stars had a look around the museum, saw bits from a ship wreck called the London. Then marched into the Town centre were given some free time to look around the shops – before we had lunch – which we had packed up earlier, travelled to the end of the pier and back, saw some seals had a look around the life boat station, saw Jimmy’s and Jamie’s Café, On the way back to camp we did our shopping for or menus, came back prepped for Scouts Own activity and prepared a Stunt for the campfire. Cooked dinner, made desert, washed up played a wide game, sat round a camp fire, sang songs, came in had another laser challenge, had some hot chocolate and a biscuit before going to bed.

Sunday: Got up, cooked our own breakfast again, went swimming, came back had lunch, packed up, cleared up, did our Scouts Own before coming home exhausted.
