On the weekend of 8 & 9 of June the 27th Scout troop went on an expedition camp to Danemead campsite near Broxbourne. In preparation each patrol were given a budget to buy their own food and arrange their own travel to the campsite. All patrols decided to take the train to Broxbourne station and walk the rest of the way.

When we arrived on site we first had to put up camp, for us that was the hammocks but other patrols had to set up tents.

Then it was time for dinner, but first we had to cook the food on the stoves, some of which did not work so some patrols had to cook on the open fire instead.

After dinner we all enjoyed the big camp fire with songs and games for entertainment.

After a good night s sleep it was time to make our breakfasts and lunch and then pack away the camp before the walk and train journey back to Cambridge.

Overall it was a very good camp and everyone had a great time.
