Annual Camp 2018 by Taybah

My 1st Claremont Troop Camp started on the 15th December 2018.

We packed all our equipment for the camp, and then started our journey to Appleton Scout Base on Signal Hill.

At Appleton we were divided into patrols. We hiked down Signal Hill to the noon gun. The navy officer gave us a bit of history about the noon gun. It was really amazing to watch and be part of this.

The next day we played games. We hiked through Bo-Kaap and to the gardens. We took a My-City    bus to Camps Bay beach, where we played some games and swam. We took a My-City bus up to Appleton.

We made meals and learned how to look for animal tracks. We poured Plaster of Paris on to the track and let it dry. We built a dresser and a gateway.

The following day we had our own amazing race at base camp, patrols competing against each other.  We were given clues to carry at the different bases. The winning patrol received some chocolates.

Time passed by so quickly and then it was time to pack up camp to journey home again.

The camp was really memorable and I learnt new things, it gave me the chance to interact with the members of our troop more.

Thank you David our troop scouter and his team for an amazing troop camp.
