Camp at Ravengill
28th - 30 March 2008

We shared a site at Ravengill in Commondale with 1st Brompton Scout Troop and 1st Northallerton Cub Pack.
We arrived on Friday evening and pitched out tents and carried the kit up to the site. We then played wide games with the Brompton Scouts.

Everyone cooked their own breakfast on Saturday morning and then we went out cycling whilst the Scouts built camp gadgets and did some pioneering work. We stopped at the cafe in Castleton for refreshments in addition to cooking our own lunch on expedition stoves. We met up with the Northallerton Cubs who were out for a walk and also had a football match.
By the time we returned to the site the rain had started so we took shelter and got hot drinks ready for when the Scouts returned for their treasure hunt.

The rain abated for a while late evening and we built a camp fire using the wood the Scouts had collected earlier in the day so everyone was able to get warm before retiring to bed.

Sunday was a breezy and sunny day so we were able to break camp and get the tents way dry before more games and then returning home mid-afternoon.
