Battalion Junior Section Camp


The Junior Section weekend camp was held at the Thurso Centre at Felden Lodge from 24th to 26th June.
There were 26 boys from five companies, 2nd, 3rd, 10th, 16th and 18th Enfield.
On the Friday evening boys joined in with table games as they arrived and once they were all there they enjoyed a supper of hot dog and chips and then saw a DVD of Night at the Museum 2 before going to bed and settling down to sleep (eventually).
On Saturday morning the boys went to the Aquasplash fun pool in Hemel Hempstead where they had great fun on the various flumes and rapids rides. After lunch they were taken by minibus to Phasels Wood activity centre where some climbed the revolving wall while others shot air rifles and then some climbed a solid wall while others climbed up stacks of crates. Back at Felden there were some challenge type games involving water to varying degrees and as the weather had improved greatly this cooled the boys down, but just to make sure, once the games had been cleared the boys engaged in a full scale water fight. After a barbecue tea the boys dried off and changed for the evening activity which was a quiz.
On Sunday morning it was back to Phasels Wood where everyone enjoyed the cresta run, then some boys went on the zip wire while others tried archery. This gave the boys an appetite so on their return to Felden they enjoyed a full Sunday dinner after which there was just time for a group photograph before boys and staff went their various ways home.
All in all a great weekend with great weather which the boys enjoyed. Thanks to all the staff involved with the weekend but especially to Chris Norman for all the cooking and Philip Norman for organizing the weekend and booking the activities.
