Technology Camp 2008

Technology camp was a great success again with a record number attending. Several groups were unable to attend as they attempted to book after the dead line, by which time we were already over capacity. Numbers are limited to 200 as there is a limited availability of time slots for the activities.

This year there were 224 scouts at camp with 69 leaders from 23 groups plus 37 staff and 19 crew. All groups camped on the main scout field for the first time due to the excess amount of mud on the Lynmouth field. The rain stayed off till after everyone went home too, which helped the situation a lot. So it was not the Quagmire we were fearing.

The scouts earned 165 badges. They were 56 IT1, 36 IT2, 14 IT3, 5 IT4, 26 Radio communicator and 28 Electronics. 193 electronic construction projects were completed. 250th Manchester were the Arcade games champions.

A big thank you to all those within scouting and especially those with no direct connection with scouting who helped to make it such a great success.
