It was 100 years ago today

The first Scout camp took place on the 1st August 1907, so to commemorate the event scouts all over the world had a Sunrise Ceremony. The Avon one was on Weston Super Mare beach front, with promise renewal ceremonies at 8am, 11:30am, and 4pm, each with a live linkup with another ceremony. 8am was with a group near Lake Ontario, Canada, 11:30 with a group in Avon, near Perth, Australia, and 4pm was back with the Canadians again.

happy birthday scouts

The weather was absolutely fantastic, I’ve actually come back with sunburn which is a nice feeling after all the recent rain.
