Pioneering & Activity Camp (Mar 2011)

This year, we started our pioneering camp with a trip to Pirate’s Cove, Bluewater
where we had a round of Adventure Golf and then went on the High-Ropes.

The following day, we built a friction bridge - one that doesn't use any ropes (or nails).

    The Explorer Scouts get on first, and it nearly collapses.

    Amazingly, it stays intact long enough for everyone to get on.
