Kama Scouts attended the Cotter Shield from 4 – 6th April at Camp Cottermouth. The Scouts put in 3 weeks of preparation for the medieval themed activities. We had patrol shields, flags, tunics and swords. The scouts camped in patrols and managed all of their food, prep, meals, clean up, activity times and bed times. Every patrol came home with a pennant. The whole event was a great learning experience.
The Kama leaders, ably assisted by some Kama Venturers, managed a base called Kamalot where scouts were required to build a chariot to race. Many a field was plowed and we managed to escape with little injury. The winners were awarded a silk scarf by the suitably attired leadership group. Thank you to those parents who helped to set up and pack down while we had all the fun!
