On Wednesday the 60s sub camp contingents spent their time on a day visit to a local attraction of their choice. They had a choice of Pleasurewood Hills theme park, Colchester Zoo and Duxford Aviation Museum.
One Scout from 16th Norwich Sea Scouts Toby, 12, had his first ever experience of a theme park. Toby explained his adventure: “I had butterflies flying around my stomach on the way to the theme park, I was looking forward to going on the big rides although, as it’s my first time, I am kind of nervous.”
1st Old Buckenham Scout group had a reawarding day out to Duxford Aviation Museum, this was where 3 of their Scouts, Harry, Alex and Oliver got invested on the Concorde. Also, they had an Explorer who got invested on the pirate ship, as four years ago, on the same ride during NORJAM he got invested as a Scout, what a really special touch!
Other Scouts and Guides had the chance to visit Colchester Zoo where there was the opportunity to feed sweet treats to beautiful and colourful birds. Guides from 2nd Swaffham, Courtney, Chloe and Martha had a roaring time during their zoo visit. They loved watching the penguins getting fed and the best thing was that their Guide Leaders brought all of them ice creams.
