Scouts win District Camping Competition

A team of Scouts from 1st Consett has won the Teasdale Trophy, Derwentside District Scouts' camping competition.
The team of six competed against teams from across the district, in what is a real test of Scouting skills over two days. Each team is completely self sufficient for the weekend, without leaders helping, and had to plan their own menus for the weekend camp and a programme of activities that demonstrated their skills.
Scout Leader Marc Reeves said "The Teasdale Trophy is probably the toughest Scout competition. It is a real test of teamwork and leadership by the patrol leader. Our team should be extremely proud, especially as some of the younger team members had never been camping before this year".
