The first Hillsborough Explorer Unit Summer Camp since 2004 took place this summer. Between 25th August & 1st September we took ten explorer scouts up to Scotland to complete their Chief Scout Platinum Award expeditions. From our base camp at Spean Bridge, near Fort William, the two expedition groups walked a 3-day section of the the West Highland Way, wild camping along the route. Plans are already in place for next year’s summer camp which will be at Walesby Forest in Nottinghamshire.
