OTTERY St Mary Scout Group is preparing for an action packed summer of activities.

While Beavers enjoyed an end of year picnic at the Donkey Sanctuary in Sidmouth on Monday (July 18), Cubs are looking forward to a two-night summer camp starting today.

Cub leader Catrina Johnson said: “For some of them, this will be their first time away from home. They get to cook their own food and do the washing up, which is a new experience for many!”

Forty Scouts and Explorers will head to Holland on July 31 to take part in a ten-day camp based in Delft at the original Dutch gunpowder magazine building.

“A huge amount of planning has gone into the trip since last September,” said Scout leader Chris Evans.
