Hils Summer Camp 2018

It’s been a great first few days here in Wales. After a relaxed (and very wet) afternoon setting up camp and a curry on Saturday, we sent the DofE expedition group on their way, and due to the wet weather we visited a local climbing and bouldering centre which was a really fun challenge for the explorers. After a fantastic roast dinner we settled in for the night before embarking on a waterfall walk the following morning, where we saw some fantastic scenery. Some more onsite activities made us hungry for lovely homemade pizza. Today we enjoyed crate stacking, which wasn’t so easy because of the sloped ground. We then visited a leisure centre for a swim and enjoyed some fantastic slides and pools. All in all we have had a fun start to this years summer camp and we look forward to some great activities over the next few days, some of which the explorers have not experienced before.

Dear all

Welcome to the Belgium 2017 Blog here you will find information about this summers expedition to Belgium prior to our departure and hopefully daily posts about what we have been up to during the expedition so these of you at home can keep up to date with our adventure in Belgium.


Neil Murray Bournemouth 2016

So we are all safely happily at camp after a quiet but good journey down to Bournemouth unlike the leaders who went earlier in the day and got stuck in all the new forest traffic.
We sat round our unusually eerily quiet campfire and then went to bed.
Leisurely start to the morning and we head for Moore Country park, what a beautiful day we’re not scared…. Sun cream applied and a lovely morning at the country park.
We headed back to the campsite and enjoyed a full afternoon of VERY competitive volleyball tournament. We are now preparing dinner (fajitas) to cook on our fire.

The campsite is lovely, we’ve heard the showers are nice…yet to try them though.

We are especially looking forward to our trip to the aqua park in the new forest, not to be confused with the old forest.

Lots of Love we don’t miss the parents or anyone else reading this 😜😉
