Event : Summer Camp Fun 2013

Summer Camp returned for 2013 with young people from Blackpool B&G, Burnley B&G & Tommy’s all packing their bags and setting up camp at Ormside Mill for 4 days.

Once the entertainment of watching the group ‘setting up’ their tents had finished their next challenge was to defeat The Cube, which they did and in some style, coming together and working as a team which was great preparation for the coming week. Their reward for beating The Cube was their supper, Syrup Cake & Custard, mmmm.

After a long night, everyone was bright and breezy in the morning which was a good job as Gorge Walking was the first activity at Church Beck, a new venue introduced by Matt the Ormside Manager. Lots of laughter, screams, splashing & falling ensued but everyone agreed it was the best gorge they had been to. After drying off and dinner off we went to explore a nearby disused slate quarry in the sunshine which was stunning in the sunlight and clear water. Once returned the action only stopped for tea as Tom & Jasmine then delivered Dodgeball, Cricket & Wide Games in the evening, before it was time for bed, which was much needed by everyone.

Wednesday brought more sunshine despite what the forecasters said and with it Canoeing, Cliff Jumping on Ullswater and a Kelly Kettle for hot chocolate at dinner which for some was welcome relief. Needless to say everyone was shattered at the end of the day which also signalled the end of the good weather and a struggling BBQ but we got there in the end. Games in the barn followed by apple pie and custard brought to an end a busy programme of activities for the camp.

Well done to everyone who came to camp especially Cameron Mahmood of Burnley B&G Club who received the Member of Camp Award & Ryan Taylor of Blackpool B&G Club who was Runner Up.

Lastly a big thank you to Tom Melvin (Burnley) & Jasmine Gwillam (Blackpool) who came along and volunteered for the camp and helped make it happen.
