Explorers Winter Camp 2015


We had another fantastic winter weekend in the Lake District. This year we stayed at Urswick Scout Camp. Nice little site near Ulverston.

On the Saturday we went on a DofE Practice route up to Levers Water near Coniston. Apart from a sudden snow / hail storm it stayed dry for us.

Saturday night was a 3 course meal prepared by the Explorers and included Bacon Sushi, Beef Stew and for pudding pancakes and popcorn.

We cut things short early on the Sunday as the weather deteriorated rapidly so after tidying up we drove home through rain, snow and gales.
