Summer Camp Video is Live

We didn't take a lot of pictures at camp this year - instead we made a video.


Taking inspiration from The Script's "Hall of Fame", it was on the minibus playist on the way over, we used a drone, two GoPros and a phone to capture this. 


It gives you a bit of an insight into the activities we get up to at camp and since most of it was edited at camp struck us how much technology has moved on since we made our first Summer Camp video in the 90s.


Watch out for the time lapse of setting up the site. It took quite a bit longer than it appears. 


If we can find the original Summer Camp video - who knows maybe we'll have a re-release for the centenary. There are a few familiar faces in the original film some grew up to be the leaders ;-)

We're back on

Tonight was our Troop Christmas party at Quasar Laser in South Shields. Just to add a slightly daft twist we decided to play in onesies. Sure it was hot, and we did look more than a bit ridiculous walking to Quasar for the minibus but hey when there's a record to set who cares!
