    Nicely done! Certainly counts as an Exploration "journey with a purpose"!

    Reminds me of last years PL and APL camp. The first night/ day of this event are training and soft skills based from the leaders. Once they are set up briefed we ****** off and leave them to it for the rest of the weekend with a plan and budget etc. to slowly introduce them to passport camping.

    I run some errands, pop up to the hall with some excess gear and head home. Sit down for dinner and the phone rings- calling is one of our more experienced and elder PL's... this can't be good I think as I answer the call.

    "Dan. We've eaten all our dinner and all really really hungry. We've got some of our food budget left from the shopping- can we get some more Chicken"

    "Sure. Sounds like a very good idea" I say.

    What they failed to mention was that the Chicken they were planning was in the form of chicken nuggets, from McDonalds, delivered by Uber Eats.

    As a responsible Scout Leader I should probably have been cross, but found it nothing more than entertaining!

    I think that's the fun of camping without Leaders. I remember as a young Scout eating fish and chips around a fire when we should have been in bed. The fact that we felt that our Leader would not approve made it more fun!
