YOUNGSTERS enjoyed four days of activities at a scout group.

The 1st Pointon Baden Powell Scout Group spent Friday to Monday at a camp in Aslackby, enjoying traditional activities such as making a shelter, cycling to the camp, gutting trout and making their own ropes.

Perry McGee, who founded a national tracking school, was on hand to teach the youngsters some new tricks.

The group was started about 14 months ago with about 20 young scouts and is one of only two Baden Powell groups in Lincolnshire.

It follows the traditional teachings of Baden Powell and since starting has gone from strength to strength and now has 60 scouts on its books. It is the fourth camp the group has held and the second on the site in Aslackby.

Group scout master Steve Warcup said: “The kids had a great weekend and all said it was the best weekend camp they had ever been to which was really nice to hear.

“They learnt some new survival skills and it was great to have Perry, who has just come back from Mozambique, there.

“I think they all got a lot out of the weekend.”
