As we move to a new year our thoughts turn to Agoonoree 2021. As with the rest of the country we are hoping that life returns to normal and we are able to hold a face to face camp in 2021. It was lovely to see so many people join our at-home camp in 2020 and would like to thank all our supporters for enabling this to happen. We are hoping to return to Moulsford Prep School for Agoonooree 2021 from 31 July to 7 August to meet old acquaintances and make new friends.
Our 200 Club regularly supports our camp with a funding donation.
It’s only £10 for the year and as well as supporting our camp for Scouts with special needs you will have a chance to win one of four prizes each month. The first draw will be at the end of October.
The 200 Club runs from October to July and there are 10 lucky draws. The first prize every month is £50.00; second prize is £30.00 and third and fourth prizes are £10.00. All the money left over at the end of the year will be spent directly on the Scouts attending our very special camp.
You can find out more here, and if you know anyone else that might like to join, we are always very grateful for new members.
Camp 2020 has come to an end. It wasn’t the camp we were planning at the beginning of the year, but it will certainly be memorable. We’ve still managed our traditional camp photo, wake up shake up, camp fire and disco. We even managed to present the happiest camper award and finished with our camp anthem, “always look on the bright side of life”. Thank you to everyone who has ensured this years camp could happen, and hopefully we can meet in person in 2021.
Today has started with some fun and games and we were joined by Tom Milson, UK Commissioner for Inclusion. We played heads or tails, animal charades and spot the difference. We will spend the day getting ready for our traditional end-of-camp disco and campfire with glow sticks, bubble wands and face paints delivered to all our Scouts. Let’s get ready to party!
The penultimate day has concluded with photos of our bird boxes, a trip to the races and a special visit by Tim Kidd, UK Chief Commissioner. It’s been a great day and we look forward to our camp fire and disco tomorrow evening, as well as the highlight of the day – presenting the award to the happiest camper.
Animal day has come to camp. We’ve got door hangers to decorate, bird boxes to make and faces to paint. We look forward to seeing our virtual zoo this evening, we may even spot some real life animals!
What amazing creations we’ve seen today, our bakers will definitely give the professionals a run for their money. Paul and Pru would be proud. Lot’s of energy is needed for animal day tomorrow so it’s a good job we’ve got all that sugar to keep us going.
Today is baking day with everyone creating a masterpiece for judging this evening. We look forward to seeing everyone’s creations later on!
We end the day by sharing photos and videos of our attempts at flying and investigating a few philosophical questions. Sleep well campers we have a day of baking tomorrow.
Today started with a song before learning more about our activities for the day. We’ve got kites to decorate and fly, paper aeroplanes to make and prop planes to fly. A day full of highs.
