Scouts Patrol Leaders Camp at Braeburn Imani International School Report.
The scouts departed BKIS at exactly 8:30am for Nairobi. The journey to Nairobi was excellent as the weather was quite favourable. We made one stop at West Side Mall in Nakuru for a short break where the scouts were able to get their lunch from KFC before embarking on the journey to Nairobi and arrived at around 5:30 pm. We unfortunately missed out on the opening ceremony which was set to kick off at around 4pm. The scouts indulged themselves with refreshments provided by the host and later on managed to put up their tents in time for supper as well as the evening activities.
There was a heavy down pour almost every evening that forced us to abandon our tents for the classrooms throughout our stay at camp. The BKIS scouts lived up to the values and expectations and no disciplinary cases were reported. The scouts received training on various subject areas including but not limited to First Aid and Badge System. Medical and dietary considerations were well factored and considered during our stay at camp.
We would like to appreciate the team spirit and courage exhibited by the scouts even in the face of adversity.
