It might be the last overnight camp of this autumn – the frost covers the ground every morning now, and the temperature at that time is in the minuses.
The camp started with a meeting at the scout hut (and a makeshift see-saw for some)…
…before we set off on our hike through the forest….
On the way we found mushrooms…
…and there would be no crossing the bridge until each one of us could point out where we were on the map….
When we got to our destination, the ‘vindskydd’ (wind-protector)….
….we first had a talk about the nature of the surrounding area….
…before testing out our newly learnt knowledge on how to cook using a ‘storm kök’….
Each patrol group cooked alone, with minimal help from a scout leader – and each group managed it just fine!
Then there was the grilling of sausages over the open fire…
…some playing in the forest…..
…and a little rock climbing…..
…before heading back to the scout hut (having picked many more mushrooms on the way)….
In the evening we enjoyed some games, and the cooking – and eating – of our delicious finds….
Plus no Saturday could be without a handful of sweeties (which bears and dolls were not excluded from)….
…before settling in to our sleeping bags for a long nights sleep in the scout hut!
