‘Fire’ was the theme for Settle Scouts recent highly successful camp at Great Tower on Windermere. Traditional campcraft was at the core of the event so the youngsters practised fire lighting techniques, made char cloth, sewed tinder bags and cooked their own meals all weekend. They also had a list of challenges to complete, such as making a tripod, cooking without utensils and making fizz sticks. A highlight was a water fight when the Scouts attacked the Youth Commissioner, Tom Haigh. Everyone got soaked but that’s all part of the fun!
