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).

Even more marshmallows – you can never have enough ;-)
Starting on the friction bridge
All done !
The Explorer Scouts get on first, and it nearly collapses.
Amazingly, it stays intact long enough for everyone to get on.
As we didn’t get enough friction, we try again with pits for the legs.
But it doesn’t really help…
Surfs up !
Perhaps we should call it a sun lounger?
Yet it survives!
Unloading back at the Cabin (our Scout Hut).
