Freezer Camp (Feb 2012)
This year's Freezer Camp was truly freezing with several cm of snow on the ground,
and predicted overnight temperatures of -4° C !
A Snowy Start
A little snow wasn't going to stop us camping.
Are We There Yet?
Or, how many Scouts can you fit in the back of a Jeep Cherokee?

Tents Up - 1
You can't tell from here, but we trampled the snow down before putting up our tents as compacted snow is a good insulator.

Is it just me, or is it easier putting up tents in the dark, like we usually do?
On Guard ?
One of the leaders brought their dog along on camp, but I don't think he'll make a guard dog!

Morning - 3
The Scouts' tents.
One thing Mark, the Scout Leader, didn't take into consideration was that everything left under the cooking shelter would freeze overnight. Doh!
It's never all work and no play in the Scouts ;-)
Investiture - 1
Camps are the best place for Scouts to be invested. Here, a new Scout makes the Scout Promise.
