The Victoria Scout Group organised a four-day camp at Dwejra during the Easter holidays. Around 80 members from the Cub Scouts, Scouts, Venture Scouts and Rovers together with their leaders attended the camp. The strong winds which hit the island on Easter Sunday and Monday destroyed several tents, including the one housing the kitchen. The marquee, which usually serves as a dining shelter, had to be used by the kitchen team. The group now has to replace the kitchen tent before its next camp in summer. In spite of the disruptions, each section followed its programme linked to the theme ‘The Great Siege’. Activities included nature hikes, crafts, gadget-building, pioneering projects, obstacle courses, cooking sessions, a clean-up of the area, various games and badge work. The group lived to Lord Robert Baden-Powell’s dictum: ‘A scout smiles and whistles under all circumstances’.
