Last weekend Cubs, Scouts and a Beaver went camping at Powburn in Northumberland.

We all had a great time taking part in a wide range of outdoor activities, including:

  • Learning to use an axe to chop firewood
  • Fire lighting
  • Cooking on a campfire, toasting marshmallows, making popcorn and damper bread
  • Preparing wood pigeon for lunch
  • Hiking and exploring the local nature. We spotted wild otters, a swimming cow and a toad
  • Playing wide games
  • Using the activity equipment at the scout centre
  • Target shooting using air rifles

There are loads more photos to look at on our Gallery
