14th Highfield Friday Scouts
Clearly Wales is the place to be for adventure! 14th Friday Scouts travelled all the way up to Snowdonia for their 9 day camp which included herding sheep out of our camping field, climbing & scrambling up mountains & down valleys, exploring underground slate mines by boat-ride, exploring tree-tops via many many zip-wires, cycling on “single-tracks” in hilly forests, bouncing in underground trampolines and surfing in a man-made lake. This video shows it all!
This video shows some of the best bits!
Friday Scouts 9-Day Summer Camp in 90 seconds – it doesn't really do it justice, but during the week, we:* herded sheep out of our camping field* climbed & scrambled up mountains & down valleys* explored underground slate mines by boat-ride, climbing, abseiling, via-ferrata and zip-wire* explored tree-tops via many many zip-wires* climbed & bouldered on rocks* cycled on "single-tracks" in hilly forests* bounced in underground trampolines* surfed in a man-made lakeThe lovely Welsh weather sadly cancelled a few of our plans (biggest zip-wire in Europe, coasteering, hammocking expedition & sea-kayaking) – but we all had a great time!Roll on the next camp!
