Cumbrae Camp

Wednesday 21st August 2019

Our national camp took place in May with 128 young people and staff from 15 Companies in Scotland taking part. Young people got the opportunity to experience living under canvas, outdoor activities such as water sports, hill walking, cycling, STEM activities and so much more, there was something in the programme for everyone giving them the chance to learn, grow and discover whilst in a safe, fun environment. In contrast, the weekend got off to a great start with everyone taking part in the ‘Safe Place Challenge’ led by Christian Aid, an outdoor challenge learning basic survival skills like those used by millions of people fleeing war, conflict and disaster worldwide. Although the weather was not so good this year it didn’t dampen the spirits of the campers and on a very wet Saturday night we were invited by the Chaplain for camp (who happened to be the local minister) to watch a movie and dry out at the new Cumbrae Parish Church.
