Scout Camp 2018
Earlier this summer, our Scout Troop set off walking to the sea via the New Forest. The first day started with a jump in the minibus to Stanford in the Vale, and a walk from there to the first campsite near to the White Horse at Uffington.
The White Horse can just be seen in the distance from the campsite.
Day 2 was spent exploring White Horse Hill and its surroundings.
A slightly wet start on day 3 meant that morning prayers and Mass were held in the tent. Then we explored Stonehenge and Salisbury Cathedral.
By day 4 we had reached the New Forest, but were slowed down by heavy rain. There was plenty of time to plan routes through the New Forest though.
On day 5 we began walking through the New Forest, and didn't use the minibus again until we had reached the sea.
We were able to celebrate Mass in some stunning outdoor locations.
Day 8: the sea!
