Fun in the sun at camping trip

- ABI SMILLIE

The camp fire was rekindled as the 2nd Ayrshire Ballantrae Scouts went on their first camping trip since 2019.

The adventure started with a camp in their greenfield site in Girvan before heading on a road trip to Largs where the group then caught to ferry to Cumbrae to visit Millport.

In Millport, the scouts cycled around the island, enjoyed ice cream and a paddle in the water.

During the fun in the sun weekend, the youngsters and leaders enjoyed a stand up paddleboar­ding session back in Girvan.

Scout Leader Wendy from 2nd Ayrshire said: “Our long awaited first camp in more than a year and half was a huge success and the weather was definitely on our side for once.

“As a leader, it was great to see our wee scout group coming together and seeing them really gel as a team.

“For most of the group it was their first time camping with us as scouts so it was great to see how much confidence they gained from it.

“The young people and adults all had a blast and it was great to be back out doing what we love.”
