The Stella Maris College Scout Group recently held its annual summer camp at Xemxija. The eight-day camp was jam-packed with activities for all sections, with about 75 members attending at its peak.

The Cub Pack section’s camp programme featured water games, swimming, badge-work, pot decoration and planting, environmental talks, a night hike and a cookout. It ended with the traditional scout campfire, complete with stunts and songs.

The Scout Troop section’s activities included a night treasure hunt, a talk by the Armed Forces of Malta, sailing boat building, water games, cooking competitions, swimming, snorkelling, canoeing and clay slope climbing.

The Venture Unit section’s programme kicked off with the building of a spacious friction lock shelter, equipped with custom-made hammocks which were used throughout the duration of the camp. The section’s other activities ranged from geocaching, hiking and caving to kayaking, campfires and survival techniques.

Meanwhile, the leaders and kitchen team were busy making sure that the camp ran smoothly and that all meals were nutritious and ready on time. The camp came to an end with the dismantling and transportation of all the equipment to the group’s headquarters in Gżira.
