Camp Dads

June 20, 2005

We survived the forth Annual Camp Dads. 13 Dads, 26 Children spent the weekend at a camp site in the New Forest. With scorching weather there was plenty of Sun Block used and only one place to go on Saturday.

The Beach.

This was probably all of the British Summer so we made the most of it. Swimming in the Sea eating Ice cream, playing beach cricket. Listening to very silly jokes. “Why are Pirates called Pirates?”…………… ”because they Arrrre”, clearly you had to be there for that one.

Then Saturday evening and for the what had become traditional Camp Site Curry, pictured. We failed this year to get them to deliver but the take away was excellent.

After striking camp, Sunday was spent by the River at FordingBridge paddling and playing games in the shade offered by the trees.

All the Dads survived and so did all the children, which has to be a result.

  1. [Trackback] Here is an article from June 2005 about Camp Dads, which is a bunch of Dads getting together with the kids (appears no wifes or girlfriends allowed) for a camping trip.  It’s a great idea that many other Dads should consider.  Not sure if this …

  2. The fifth annual Camp Dads camp is due to pitch tents this Friday.
