    I was very pleased to visit 1st Sutton-at-Hone Scout & Explorer camp at Thriftwood campsite recently to present Tony Lawrence with his long-awaited Wood Beads to recognise completion of his leader training.

    While on camp I presented Jan Peeling with her 20-year Service award.

    Although a very wet start to their camp, all were in good spirits and the sun shone while I was there.

    The same weekend I went to Cudham Shaw Scout Campsite to see 3rd Dartford’s family camp. Each family made a family ‘shield’.  There were some really great designs. Everyone was having a great camp.

    Other camps run recently include Stone (Dartford)’s family camp at Shepherds Park, Sittingbourne. The photos show once again, they had a successful camp.

    Also, both 8th Dartford and The Brent (6th Dartford) held ‘expedition challenge’ camps based at Hopehill, Gravesham.

    My sincere thanks to every adult who was involved in planning and delivering these Night Away events.
