Elfin Camp (28th/29th September 2013)

This was North Oxford's first Elfin Camp. We took 9 up to Youlbury Scout Camp for the weekend and had a fantastic time with Elfins from all over the Oxford District.

After we had pitched our tents all the groups were mixed up for camp duties and to get to know each other. They started in their new teams (Willow, Ash, Beech and so on) by making friendship bracelets. Then throughout the weekend everyone chipped in in traditional Woodies' fashion with cooking, washing up and litter picking. 

The weekend was packed with things to do: whittling, campfire construction, shelter building, poncho making, dampers baking, adventure playground climbing, slack-rope walking and more. Not to mention the Merry Moot and singing around the (huge and fabulous) birds-nest campfire until late. North Oxford Elfins did their bit with ukulele, card tricks, singing and some dramatic tales.

The snoring person who kept some people awake on Saturday night shall remain nameless...
