We were in sub-camps, there were 38 Brownies and Guides, and 10 adults in our sub-camp.
We had sun, drizzle, lashing rain, thunder, lightening, wind - pretty much par for the course! So far I have camped 3 times, 2 nights each; the first camp was sunshine so hot we had to pull our cars alongside our tents so we could sit in the shade, the second was lashing rain and close to abandonment, so at least I had already seen the extremes!
Surprisingly, nearly all my Brownies got very tearful during the weekend and wanted their mums. Many of these were girls who had been away plenty of times with me before, both under canvas and to London, a big thing for them! I think it was the proximity to home, they knew their mums were less than two miles away and that made the parting harder than if we were two hours away by train.
Still, it was a good weekend and I'd do it again. (What IS wrong with me?) Though I'd never been happier to have a hot bath then a dinner put in front of me when I got home!
