Radstock scouts go Dutch as they explore Holland camp
Mercury Explorer Scouts from Radstock jetted off to Holland for their summer camp.
They stayed at the Buitenzorg International Scout Centre which is near the town of Baarn, in the middle of the De Vuursche Forest.
The 12-hectare site used to be the estate of a wealthy family, and was bought in 1949 by the Dutch Scout movement. It is described as one of the most beautiful Scout campsites in the Netherlands.
The group enjoyed an active week which included canoeing for a day on the canals at Amersfoort, swimming in a local open-air pool and tackling a high ropes course.
The youngsters also spent a day sightseeing in Amsterdam.
Explorer leader Ian Tucker said: "Everyone had a great time and we are now looking forward to the start of a new term."
The Explorers, for young people aged 14 to 18, meet in Radstock Scout Hall on Monday evenings.
