Last weekend, over 300 Explorer Scouts and their Leaders enjoyed a Halloween themed WINTer Activty Camp at Thriftwood Campsite.
On Friday evening, after arriving at site, and the Explorer Scouts having put up their tents - WINTAC started with an opening ceremony down on the subcamp field, followed with everyone heading to the entertainment marquee where there were local bands playing on the main stage.
After a rainy night, Saturday morning greeted the Explorer Scouts with glorious sunshine, and allowed them to take part in some new activities, with all the usual Scouting favourites.
Amongst the activities on offer at Thriftwood were Pedal Cars, Archery, Climbing, The Cave Maze, Trampolining, Water Walkerz, The Sky Hi Walk and the Cresta Run.
The WINTAC Team had also laid on a few different activities, including a gladiators challenge, and had professionals in to run a DJ workshop and a break dancing workshop.
The night fell, and WINTAC was transformed into a Halloween Ball, with prizes for best fancy dress costumes, plus entertainment with the 'WINTAC's got Talent' competition.
