After the distraction of COVID restrictions Wellingborough district were finally able to join together for their district camp.

Over the final weekend of June over 300 young people aged 6 to 25 and their leaders took part in a weekend of activities at The Leslie Sell Activity Centre in Bromham, Bedfordshire.

The activities available included backwoods cookings, firefighting, orienteering, karting , archery, shooting and a water slide. The camp finished with a colour run. For the older young people, the Explorers, they had a trip to a local water park.

Great feedback was received and thanks goes to all those involved in arranging the weekend.
