14th Itchen South Scouts Survive Crazy Camping
5th July 2017, 7:14pm

Last September, we went on a camping trip to Ferny Crofts campsite, but it wasn’t an ordinary camp in in tents, or even a camp where you had the luxury of sleeping in a lodge. No it was camping on a completely different scale – it was a survival camp.

When we arrived, we found our campsite, which was quite a lonely spot, but we separated into groups twos, threes and fours, and we cleared the spaces that we were going to camp in.

My friends Jess and Tilly teamed up with me, and we cleared a spot between two trees. The, we collected a couple of tarpaulins, some rope and few pegs. Along with some logs that we found, this was going to be our shelter for the night!

After that, we made a fire, and dinner time came quickly. We prepared lots of different types of meat, including lamb, beef, heart and kidney and we cooked the meat on sticks along with vegetables. We also had fish and a lamb stew.

It was quite cold that night, but we all had our sleeping bags, mats and survival bags, and, fortunately we all survived.

The next morning, we had some cooked breakfast which included jacket potatoes and a cooked breakfast. We had prepared the jackets last night.

When the time came to go home, we all left a good deal dirtier than before, but we had all enjoyed our survival camp very much.
