Company Section September 2017
Earlier in August, 13 Company Section boys and three leaders travelled to Barcaple Outdoor Centre near Castle Douglas in Dumfries and Galloway for our annual Summer Camp.
We enjoyed a busy five days with boys taking part in a wide range of activities, with highlights including kayaking and canoeing, mountain biking, archery, zip wiring, crate climbing and raft building.
While a lot of the activities involved getting wet and muddy, we were blessed with good weather for much of the week, which meant the evenings could be spent doing things like playing football, enjoying a camp fire, and taking part in repeated games of “hunt the welly”.
Having returned from camp, our attention now turns towards the beginning of the new session, with enrolment taking place on Friday, September 1st at 8.00pm.
Normal activities include sports, games, badge work, bugle band, drill, vaulting and a large number of competitions with other local companies as well as our own Company outings.
We ended last session with 19 boys in the Company Section and we hope to have similar numbers this time around. Any boy between the school ages of P7 and S6 will be made most welcome.
