More than 400 young people and leaders came together for a fun packed weekend to celebrate the centenary of the Junior Section.
The Juniors 100 Camp and Fun Day was held at Scout Park in North London on Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th June. The event was opportunity for Juniors from across London to join together and celebrate this significant anniversary.
Some 250 young people and leaders camped overnight with 170 joining us for the day on the Saturday. Activities through- out the weekend included an It’s a Knockout Team Challenge, climbing, rifle shooting, archery, bungee run, sumo suits, bag drop, gladiator duel, crafts, face painting, laser tag, puppets, football freestyling, magic/illusions, toasting marshmallows, bonfires, disco, late night film and lots more. A celebration service on the Saturday included a time of worship with a message led by evangelist Tom Elliott. Visiting Football Freestyler Steven Gray performed on stage and at the end we celebrated by singing Happy Birthday and releasing 100 balloons.
A great weekend was had by all and it is hoped that the District can organise more residentials such as this in the future.
