District Camp 2013

We had a good turn out from Iffley Fields; seven adults: Tim, Debbie, Rana, Liz, Richard, Louise and Zoe; thirteen children. Tegan came for Sunday.

The weather improved from dizzle and showers when we arrived to blistering hot on Saturday afternoon.

All tents were pitched in time for the first Circle, followed by hot chocolate.

On Saturday morning we went on a walk.

At the end of the walk we found a Palmate Newt and a Common Toad.

I spent the afternoon preparing the Merrymoot space and building the fire. I got a lot of help and supervised the making of some wands and miniature broomsticks. The sun was very strong so it was nice to be near the trees.

The Merrymoot was great, some great performances superbly compered.

The fire was lit by Heather and someone from each group brought greetings and put a stick on the fire.

We sang songs and were joined by the cubs and scouts. They taught us Charlie was a pigeon.

We had hot chocolate around the fire and then went to bed.

On Sunday we got up less early and started to pack.

The Wide Game

It was explained to us that to enter story land we had to have a magic facepaint.

The fairy godmother had need of a magic spoon which had been lost in the magic cold porridge.

Little Red Ridinghood needed us to play Grandmother's footsteps.

but the wolf came and chased us anyway.

We arrived at the three little pigs house, where, sadly, my camera battery ran out.

We made a house of Elfin Bonds, the strongest material , and the fierce wolf could not break it down.

We encountered a beautiful mermaid, a troll, rumplestiltskin and a surprising dwarf.

We finished packing, had lunch in time for final circle and pickup.
