Wiltz 2009


Sherry Sining in Walibi

This years annual camp took place in Wiltz International Campsite, Luxembourg from
3rd – 13th August.
11 scouts and 56 leaders had a great time staying in a Chalet on the outskirts of Wiltz town. There was plenty to do with mountains and a river on our doorstep.
The troop had rented two minibuses from Brussels proudly named Mavis and Davis.
This made life easy as scouts could be dropped right at the front door or their activities. It also meant day trips to Walibi theme park and Luxembourg City were done at our own leisure.
Scouts enjoyed making bivys, cooking backwoods, eating Larry the Lobster, swimming, high ropes course, orienteering, fire hike, charades, river walks, lighting fires on water, campfires and collecting wood up the steepest hills in the world. They also got to meet scouts from all around the world and learn something about their home country and swap kneckers.
The sports league consisted of badminton and ping pong which all the boys showed their competitive side in.
The high ropes course and kayaking 13km and cycling back were some of the highlights of a full and fun programme.
Scouts also have the opportunity to tell friends and family that they were in Luxembourg, Belgium, Germany and even France all in an 11 day camp.
