Day 1 at the 19th Bolton Centenary Camp

After the first flag break of the camp, we looked around the campsite to get to know our surroundings. We tried very hard to look for bears but we were unsuccessful. There are only two black bears on the campsite, but luckily we’re almost certain that Dan and Sam won’t eat us. We also found the disc golf course around the campsite. Disc golf is a mixture of frisbee and golf, but using trees as the holes. We had a hard time trying to find the first hole but after that we had a great time. When we came back we had a sandwich for lunch. Next we had a fun time playing games on the field such as rounders and bulldog. Next we went for another walk and this time it was around the River Young. The path was very twisty, including a raft to cross a river. When we came back we had a very tasty diner of roast beef, Yorkshire puddings, vegetables and potatoes. For dessert we had waffles with the traditional Canadian maple syrup.

   

 

After the delicious dinner, we had the first half of the scouts 5-a-side football tournament. The general morale of the teams was high, which more than made up for the lack of talent.

    Not only is it wet here in Bolton, cold enough for snow. Mind you it’s only 21 Friday’s off Christmas.
    You all appear to be having a fantastic time, take lots of photos Tom so we have an excellent record of your trip to Canada.
    Keep in touch.

    Grandma & Grand dad. Xx

    I’m surprised Dan & Sam didn’t turn up with the smell of roast beef dinner but I’m sure there was nothing left!
    Miserable weather today so make the most of the sunshine as the forecast looks great for you this week.
    Look forward to the next blog

    Trust Daniel to be leaning on the raft! Fearless child!! Looks like fun. Wish I was there (and 30 years younger). Hope the boys are taking lots of photos to preserve the memories.
