Sum­mer camp fun in sun

Stirling Observer - - FRONT PAGE -

Young­sters from Dun­blane Boys’ Bri­gade en­joyed a sun­baked an­nual sum­mer camp at Craig­toun Coun­try Park out­side St An­drew’s re­cently.

For the first time in liv­ing mem­ory, the whole week passed with­out a sin­gle drop of rain, mean­ing a fan­tas­tic time was had by all ev­ery day.

On ar­rival, they spent many hours putting up a mar­quee and their own tents as well as the cook­ing tent be­fore tak­ing part in a daily pro­gramme of sports, games and com­pe­ti­tions. They also vis­ited lo­cal at­trac­tions in­clud­ing the Olympia Pool in Dundee, Broughty Ferry Gala Chal­lenge, Scot­land’s Se­cret Bunker, Fox Lake Ad­ven­tures in the har­bour at Dundee, the Hi­malayas putting course, swims in the sea at the lo­cal beaches and lots more.

Twenty-two boys took part along with a core of four adult of­fi­cers and oth­ers who helped for var­i­ous days dur­ing the week.

The BB is grate­ful to Ster­ling Fur­ni­ture in Til­li­coul­try for its sup­port with trans­port lo­gis­tics, pro­vid­ing a lorry to move all the camp­ing gear from Dun­blane to St An­drew’s.

They would also like to thank John Hill Butch­ers (Dun­blane) for sup­ply­ing meat for part of the week.

The BB has sec­tions for all ages from five to 18 in Dun­blane and will re­sume with en­rol­ment on Au­gust 24.
