Staylittle May 2012

Abermule Scouts went camping at Staylittle and took part in various activities including rock climbing, archery and bridge building. This was the first camp for many of our scouts and an experience for us all. The scouts cooked spaghetti Bolognese and then tackled the washing up in any way that can only be described as "adventurous". After 5 hours of sleep they were up and ready for breakfast but found that setting fire to bread was a lot more fun than making toast. It was a huge success and good preparation for the All Wales Camp in June.
