99th Reading 2015 Family Camp Photographs

28 May 2015

Over the Bank Holiday weekend, 28 families came together for the 99th Reading Family Camp.

All the participants had the opportunity to try some of the activities that Scouts, Cubs and Beavers get up to at Camp, including caving, archery, rifle shooting, orienteering, fire lighting and learning some useful knots (there really are some useful knots!)

We also went on a walk to a local museum run by the Farnborough Air Sciences Trust, which gives a fascinating insight into the history of flight in the UK.

All the food was cooked and eaten outdoors in a large marquee, and everyone agreed that the standard and variety of the catering was superb.

Saturday evening was rounded off with an enjoyably noisy campfire sing-along, while the Sunday was a more gentile affair, sitting around the campfire reflecting on the day, the meaning of life and whether you really can inspect your eyelids for cracks after it has gone dark.
