Easter Egg Hunt and Campfire

Date: 30th Apr 2019 Author: Angela Rumsey

If it’s Easter it must be time for what has become something of a tradition for us at 51stBath, the annual Easter Egg Hunt and Campfire.

Now in its third year, the all-section event was held at the Bath District Cleeve Hill Campsite on Kelston Road and was as popular as ever. Eager Beavers, Cubs and Scouts came prepared. With bags and deep pockets at the ready, they quickly spread out across the site in pairs and small groups once the signal was given.

There clearly ain’t no flies on some of our guys as they took no time at all to locate the hundreds of small eggs, all 15 medium-sized eggs, two bunnies and highly-prized super-large egg.

The hunt was then followed by chocolate-eating and competitive singing around a roaring campfire where we took the opportunity to induct several new Beavers and Cubs and hand out achievement badges and Joining In Awards.

The latter is given to individuals every 12 months to recognise how long they have spent as part of the Scout movement – four years and counting for one long-term Scout.

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
