During the event, the youth members will take part in a number of activities including archery, rifle shooting and team building games. It will also be an opportunity for those who attend to voice their thoughts on their weekly programme and district events which will be used to help us shape activities going forward.

At Wintercamp 2018 they were able to try a huge number of activities including miniature tank driving, a giant swing, shooting, archery, crafts, quad bikes, go karts, laser tag and a disco, camp fire and cinema. There were many other activities too. The day and night programme kept them totally entertained.

Good fun was had by all who attended and the minibus was much quieter on the way back (as they had worn themselves out!).
