This years Survival Camp was held at Scarcliffe woods near
Chesterfield. The site has no facilities so this really is
Scouts are allowed to take a bivvy bag (a
large orange plastic bag for sleeping in), a knife and a survival
tin, containing matches, cotton wool and a few other useful
items. Food is provided and cooked on fires that the lads
No pans or tents are allowed so nature has to provide
for us. Using trees and ferns a shelter can be made to withstand
rain and wind. Good job it didn't rain then!
Food is cooked in small groups using ancient techniques, also known as tin foil.
After cooking and sleeping there isn't much time for any
other activities so keeping the fire going fills time.
