Peak 2015

Our Time At Peak 2015

Peak 2015 - Logo - Ice AgePeak 2015 was a great camp. Despite the weather being a bit wet when we setup camp on the Friday night, by Sunday it was warm and sunny, and it stayed that way for the rest of the week. A huge area of Chatsworth had been used and split into lots of sub-camps, named after periods in history – see this map of the campsite for more information. 3rd Brampton were located in the Ice Age sub-camp – close (but not too close) to one of only two shower blocks on the camp. The camp site was closed to the public (except on the open afternoon) which allowed Scouts do go off in small groups and do whatever activities they wanted to do – and there was lots to do!

Lots more pictures of the camp can be found on the official Peak 2015 Facebook page.
