Camp Craft, 12th April 2014

Written by: Claudia Kong, Sixer & Scribe

"Horse Shoe!" The senior sixers shouted at 9am sharp.

After forming our Horse Shoe, we did something different from the usual. Baloo instructed us to do the Grand Howl. We had to do it so many time before finally getting it right. After the Grand Howl, we did our usual Horse Shoe formalities.

In Indian Files, Baloo got our senior sixer, Lucas to teach us the whistle commands for horse shoe and indian file. After we practice on the whistle commands, we did knots. In our six, we revised our knots especailly the Clove Hitch which is important for today's activity.

Next, each six was given some poles and ropes. After showing us an example of a shoe rack, as a six within the given time, we have to create a shoe rack. All six immediately sprung into action. Although most six did not manage to keep our shoe rack upright, I feel that we all did well for a first attempt.

Before today's meeting came to an end, Baloo got each six to stand in front to sing a song... We had great fun listening to songs ranging from Twinkle Twinkle little star, Father Abraham to Do you want to build a snowman...

It was a great scout meeting. Looking forward to the District Campfire next week.
