Braeburn Scouts Mega camporee at Batian's View, Naromoru

On Thursday, 17th January 2019, a group of scouts both in Primary and High School together with their leaders  departed for Batian's View to attend the Annual Braeburn Schools’ Mega Camporee.

It was an exciting trip for the scouts as this year’s venue was new, having camped in Kembu for two consecutive years.

On their way, they stopped in Nyeri and had a chance to visit Baden Powell's House Museum - Paxtu at the Oustspan Hotel, where the founder of the scouting movement, lived.

During the camp, the scouts were involved in different activities including low ropes, high ropes, forest walk, first aid, camp fire and entertainment.

This year’s camporee was attended by Braeside, Braeburn Nanyuki, Braeburn Gitanga, Braeburn Garden Estate and Braeburn Imani. The scouts interacted freely and new friendships were made.

Below are some of the children’s experiences during the camporee;

The camp was great. We had a lot of fun. We did zip lining, team building, first aid and also went on a forest walk. Almond M.

The Braeburn camporee was amazing. Zip lining was scary. My favourite activities were screamer and forest walk. We also did first aid. I made new scouts friends from other Braeburn Schools. Precious W.

The camp was fun and it taught me how to take care of myself in the wild. I learnt first aid. We made our dinner with pots. We went for a hike and saw Mt. Kenya. Ashley K.

I thank the parents for their continued support.

Kind regards,
