Over 300 Scouts and Cubs from areas across Charnwood including Rearsby and Thrussington headed to Nottingham for a weekend of fun, challenges and friendship.

On the trip youngsters took part in a range of activities including go-karting, grass sledging, caving and fire lighting.

The Cub section spent half a day learning circus skills, trying out unicycle riding, spinning plates, juggling and tightrope walking. They also went to a pirate-themed crazy golf course where they played 18 holes on miniature islands.

The Scouts ventured into the city centre taking part in a treasure hunt on the trams. They also engaged with members of the local community.

Stephen Wray, media development manager for Charnwood District Scouts, said: “Back at the campsite all the young people took part in a great challenge. Dressing up the leaders!

“They had to go around the site and find parts of a clown costume, then make up the leaders as the best clown they could. Once suitably dressed, all the Scouts and leaders gathered for a campfire where they sang songs and judged the best dressed clown.

“After the singing, some sat around the fire and toasted marshmallows, whilst sharing stories and jokes.”
