DUNBLANE Boys’ Brigade held its annual summer camp at Craigtoun Country Park outside St. Andrews.

The whole week passed without a single drop of rain for the first time in living memory, which meant a fantastic experience was had by all.

It took place between June 30 and July 7 and the boys arrived on the Saturday.

They spent many hours putting up the marquee and their own tents, as well as the cooking tent.

They had a daily programme involving sports and individual games and competitions.

In addition, they also visited many different attractions including the Olympia Pool in Dundee, Broughty Ferry Gala Challenge, Scotland’s Secret Bunker, Fox Lake Adventures in the harbour at Dundee, the Himalayas putting course, swims in the sea at the local beaches and lots more. 

Twenty-two boys took part along with a core of four adult officers and others who helped for various days during the week.

The BB is very grateful to Sterling Furniture in Tillicoultry for its support with transport logistics, providing a lorry to move all the camping gear from Dunblane to St. Andrews.

They would also like to thank John Hill Butchers (Dunblane) for supplying meat for the first part of the week. 

Boys’ Brigade has sections for all ages from five-18 in Dunblane and will start again with enrolment on August 24.
