The leader of a local Scout group has described a trip to an international camp as ‘out of this world’.
The Beauvale District Scouts have just returned from an international camp at Stockholm in Sweden, where they met hundreds of other Scouts.
The boys raised all the money for the trip themselves packing bags in supermarkets and organising spring fairs and fun runs.
The Scouts arranged for the group in Sweden to camp in Eastwood at the end of the year.
Leader Richard Grainger said: “It was out of this world. It just goes to show you can build friendships around the globe.”
