A 4 day backwoods camp was held in Ballinafagh for scouts who wanted to improve their backwoods skills.  The camp was organised by the Scouters but was run by the Scouts.  We had chosen our own menu and done our own shopping.  We set up tents when we arrived and got to work carving after that. The camp was all based on backwoods.   We carved forks and spoons.  We also forged knives.  Anyone who wanted to get an adventure skill badge could work on it. Most scouts got to another level.
