This weekend six scouts camped on their own and went head to head with eight other scout troops to find out who really has the best camping skills in Chesterfield district.
They had to pitch their own tents , cook all their meals on an open fire and prove their scouting skills by building camping gadgets from scratch out of poles and rope. All of this took part at Chesterfield distric’ts campsite from Friday 20th to Sunday 22nd of June.
Last time North Wingfield scouts won the competition was in 1984, so 30 years on they are massively pleased to hold the trophy once again!
The competition is a true test of scouting skills and only comes from years of experience of being in a scout troop!
