Jacob Whincup on camp

Hello all, it’s Bagheera (Seán) here and it has been great to hear from the leaders all about how many of you are carrying on doing Scouty stuff at home during the lockdown (exactly what I would expect of the 12th who, as we all know are the best).

Jacob has been really busy over the past few weeks and he and his Mum have sent us some great pictures and news of what he has been up to. Here is what Jacob has told me in his own words (sort of):

“I’ve been busy doing lots of outdoor activities.  Last weekend I went camping in the garden. I took mum and dad with me! First Dad and I pitched the tent – I did most of the work but Daddy helped me with the tricky bits. Then we set up the fire pit and I made the beds for everyone. 

Next I cooked dinner over the fire. It was my first time cooking on a fire.  Sausages and beans was on the menu. It was yummy and I even did the dishes Beaver style. It was great hanging around the fire and I kept it going for hours before bed. I got a bit cold in the night so I hopped in the middle and Dad slept on my little bed. I slept like a baby after that.

I went for a walk through our woods on my daily exercise yesterday and picked up some bits like moss and leaves and then I used them to make some pictures. My favourite is my rugby pitch. I’ve also made a bug box and made signs for our hedgehogs which live in our garden. My Easter holiday has been great so far!!! 

I’ve attached some photos for you. Hope you are having as much fun as me!
