Scout camp

Scouting celebration

Driffield played host to a massive Scout camp.

The event at Driffield was one of 150 camps held nationwide to celebrate the centenary of the foundation of the Scouting movement.

Over 1700 Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers from across the region spent three nights under canvas, as well as the bus team's Lisa Crawford & Adrian Chenery.

The bus team were there all weekend broadcasting from the site, joining in the fun and learning more about Scouting. The team were lucky enough to be hosted by two Scout troops, the 6th Scunthorpe (Messingham) and the Jamboree Troop. The team ate and slept in the troop camps and took part in group activities.

During the weekend the Scouts were entertained with a range of activities from circus skills and a TA assault course to a foam party and popcorn making.

More traditional elements included a communal meal and camp-fire singing.
