Eleven junior scouts from the Belait District recently completed a three-day introductory camp to learn the ‘spirit of scouting’.
The camp was jointly organised by St Margaret’s School Scout Group 3006 and St James School Scout Group 3010.
The camp was held at the surrounding area of the Belait District Scouts Association Headquarters.
Scout Group 3006 leader Wendy Chai said the three-day camp served as an introductory platform for the junior scout members to be accustomed to the ways of scouting.
“Many of them only joined this year,” she said.
She added that the introductory camp is one of the scout activities that has been revived after the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions in the country were lifted.
Activities during the camp included foot drill, tracking, knotting and lashing; as well as briefings on the history of the scouting movement, its rules and culture.
The participating scouts spent three days and two nights in tents at the premises.
A similar camp was also held for 40 Cub Scouts from St James’ School Scout Group 3010 from August 28-29.
