Summer Camp 2012

Deskford (near Cullen) was this year's destination. Coastal hikes from Portnockie to Portsoy and Crovie to Pennan were challenging but rewarding- passing some great coastal scenery. Our 4 P.L.s undertook an overnight hike from Tomintoul to Craigellechie following the Speyside way. This for some of them was the last challenge for their Chief Scout Award and we look forward to presenting 3 C.S.A.s at our 1st meeting back after the Summer. 16 scouts, 3 Explorers and 5 Leaders attended. Great weather considering the washout everyone was having back home on Deeside! Shame :-

 SUMMER CAMP 2011

Summer camp this year was in Oberkirch in the Black Forest region of Germany. 22 kilted Scouts, 2 Explorers, plus leaders flew to Stuttgart from Aberdeen, via Heathrow then a short bus journey to Oberkirch. Accommodation was the scout house of our hosts, the Oberkirch scouts. We enjoyed a variety of activities such as a visit to the local castle "Schauenburg", hiking through the Black Forest, swimming, sightseeing, a visit to a historic village, toboggan run, kayaking/canoeing on the Rhine, and a visit to Europa Park.

SUMMER CAMP 2010

Scouts visited the Isle of Lewis for a week in July 2010. The campsite was on the outskirts of Stornoway, well for the first half of the week anyway - the relentless gale force winds got the better of several tents so to avoid further damage we moved to the shelter of the Stornoway Scout Hut. We toured round the island & visited a Harris Tweed mill, a distillery, the Callanish Standing Stones, the lifeboat station, Lews Castle, Uig beach, and various other places of interest. We also hiked along the heritage trail which is a scenic coastal route beginning in Ness, heading south towards Stornoway.

 

SUMMER CAMP 2009

Scouts summer camp 2009 was on Orkney - the outskirts of Kirkwall for a week at the beginning of July. We visited Scara Brae, Ring of Brodgar, Highland Park Distillery, Italian Chapel, Churchill Barrier and St Magnus Cathedral, as well as doing a bit of cycling, fishing and swimming. We took the ferry over to the island of Rousay, hiked round the island & took in the sights, and camped for one night on the island.
