Leicestershire Celebrates 90th Birthday

Sunday, 5 July 2015

Leicestershire District enjoyed a wonderful 90th Birthday May Camp with friends from Hinckley, Derby, Coventry and Wales. Eighty people co-operated in fantastic activities from archery to zipwire, plus bushcraft, campfires, canoeing, cooking, crafting, cricket and singing. The camp had all age groups from Woodchips up.

On the Sunday we welcomed over fifty additional Woodcraft friends and family for a 90th birthday party with a Woodcraft history corner, ceilidh and birthday cake. The whole weekend was such great fun and so harmonious that there's already huge enthusiasm for next year's camp. A number of newer Woodies have offered to run activities and take on roles. Roll on May Camp 2016 and beyond to Woodcraft's 100th birthday in 2025!
