EASTER CAMP 2011

The 1st A Birmingham Boys' Brigade Annual Easter Camp at Colwall in 2011 celebrated 125 years since the 1st Glasgow Boys' Brigade held their first camp at Tighnabtuich, by including Girls' Brigade members for the first time. 

Late Friday night members climbed to the top of Worcester Beacon in the dark and enjoyed viewing the stars, a shooting star and had a spectacular view of the International Space Station. 

Saturday was spent at The Commandery at Worcester enjoying a "Vintage 50's Day including a fashion show, sack and egg and spoon races, vintage cars, etc. as well as the excellent audio tour of the museum. 

Sunday morning worship at St James the Great was followed by lunch and a walk. 

On Monday we welcomed visitors and enjoyed rounders, cricket and football on the local green.

Tuesday included filling as many bottles and containers the boys and girls could find with the famous Malvern water from one of the wells.
