Aug 2017- Tolmers Summer Camp
The 13th Roxeth Scouts journeyed to Tolmers Scout Camp site for their C.T.T week (Come To Tolmers). We joined with 400 Scouts, Explorers, Guides and Rangers from round the country for the opportunity to enjoy a wide range of activities. Some of the activities our Scouts took part in were:- Quad Biking, Climbing, Shooting, Human Zorbs and Lazer tag. The site laid on evening activities like paddle boat racing, Line Dancing and the huge disco with foam party on the last evening. Some of the activities were run on site while others were a short coach journey away. Tolmers even laid on a bar with live bands & quiz evenings for the leaders. The beauty of C.T.T was that the Scouts choose which activities to do and when to do them. If a Scout choose to go laser tag every day then that was what they did.
