PL & APL Camp March 2018

By on

During our stay at Wicken Fen on the 24th of March, we stayed at a wild campsite. Most people cycled but I took a car because I don’t have a bike; but to make up for it my dad and I took all the big rucksacks. Because we arrived before everyone else, we had a bit of time to find the campsite which was at the other end of the field! Some people who had cycled had punctures so my dad had to come and rescue them. Then we started to unload all the bags and items and took them to the campsite. When everyone else arrived, we picked up the last few bits and bobs, they were really heavy. After everyone had settled in, we started to do the tasks that were specifically set by Andrew, these were all challenges we weren’t good at. My favourite was Kathy’s vegan brownie which was gobbled up almost instantly, leaving people wanting more, sadly she wasn’t there to see the amazing result. The most fun activity which was run by Chiara was the navigation one where we had to make up directions to the end where you would find a tennis ball. Both teams didn’t make it to the exact place of the ball. The other team ended up going the wrong direction at the end, it was funny to watch. The task that we learnt the most on was Liam’s phonetic alphabet because most people didn’t know what it was; it was also why his old patrol lost the district quiz! Rafi and his team did a great job of dinner, the casserole was delicious. David did Morse code, giving lots of good ways to remember the letters. Everyone did a great job teaching their task to the PLs and APLs. Overall I think PL and APL camp was a great, fun and successful time thanks to the leaders.
