Carsington Water Family Fun Weekend 2012

What a fabulous weekend was had by all members who came.
We had a total of 26 units attend this weekend with a youth area containing 12 youth members.
We had visitors from Bangor DA, Chesterfield DA, Chase DA, North Staffs Da, Staffs DA, Derbyshrie DA and the Canoe Camping Club.

The activities organised for the weekend were:
Down to the waterside for all youth members and juniors to partake in a session of canoe teaching, then back to site for a clean up and food.

All were then informed of our evening activity. A Night Walk around a small section of Carsington Water. The youth were given a copy of an Ordnance Survey map of Carsington and two co-ordinates. Also a list of items to locate on the route. Three groups were formed and one of those groups contained the camping club juniors, who I must say were absolutely brilliant. We left site at 8.30pm (setting off 5 minutes between each group) met at our ending point about 10pm and all arrived back onsite at roughly 11pm.

We also held a raffle over the weekend, which was draw at coffee morning and well attended. The feedback for the weekend was that everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

There were a few youth members who also took their youth tests and I am pleased to say passed with flying colours. Those youth members were: Tommy Faulkner (Canoe Camping Club) and Amy Howdle (Staffordshire DA). Congratulations to you both.

I hope you find the pictures interesting and would love it if you could see yourselves coming to the next Annual Family Fun Weekend and Youth Meet.
