Sheaf District Camp

27 May 2011

Friday 29th April – Monday 2nd May 2011


We arrived on site mid-afternoon, set all the tents up and unpacked. We then went for a walk to see the archery range and have a look at the site. The rest of the afternoon and evening was spent getting to know the cubs, scouts and leaders we were spending the weekend with. We then went to the opening ceremony and to a street party scouting style, to join in with the world wide celebrations of the royal wedding.

East Glanford District Camp

27 May 2010

We have recently been sent this letter of praise from the East Glanford District Commissioner for our recent  work at their district camp.

Dear Boggy, Rob, Danny, Graham, Louise, Neil, Victoria, Tom, and Diane

Just a brief letter to thank you for your attendance at the East Glanford District Camp.

When these camps are being organised and activities like archery are mentioned there is always a certain amount of trepidation regarding the Health and Safety issues around the activity. There is no doubt that archery can be a dangerous sport if conducted by untrained personnel and that is why we are indebted to your team for their skill and expertise to make the activity a safe one for our children to enjoy.

We are impressed by your team’s ability to look after itself in terms of camping and providing your own meals and we consider all of you to be part of our scouting family and friends. I will send you details of our proposed trip to Ireland in 2011.

We wish you well in all your endeavours and we hope to see you all again next camp.

Once again thank you

Yours in scouting

Harry Mortimer DC
East Glanford Scout District

Poacher 2008 Report

8 August 2008

The advance party of the team arrived at Lincolnshire showground on Friday July 25th at about lunch time, on arrival we found out where we were to camp and where the archery range was to be set up. Those that had arrived started to set up camp and as others arrived they all joined in. On Friday evening the target bosses and safety nets arrived and this was followed by Simon making omelettes for everyone before we went for a quick look around to get our bearings before it got too busy. It was fairly quiet as the main campers were not due to arrive until the following morning.

Team Update

26 June 2008

What a difference a year makes. The team has progressed from its original 17 (16 attended the Walesby World Experience) trained instructors for the Centenary of Scouting to 29 instructors, Simon the chef and Adam our 2 year old mascot.

During the last year we have attended several events, from a one off Scout night to some of the larger events. These include Freezer Camp and Crewboree, both at Hesley Wood Scout Activity Centre in Sheffield.
