I helped the Go|Media team at this year’s international scout camp on the Kirchberg in Luxembourg. This is my selection of the many photos  I took there.


Scout Vakanznomëtteg


Each summer the schoolkids from Pétange visit the scouts on the Prënzebierg for an afternoon of adventures and games. The scouts get an opportunity to interest children in the movement, and the kids get to have some fun as well as finding out whether scouting is something they’d like to see more of.
After my first attempts with DSLR video the day before I decided to practice filming a bit more.


AvEx Camp in Holzheim, Belgium


After my return from the UK I had a wedding on Saturday, then the day after I crammed some outdoor equipment into my Lafuma backpack and headed North into Belgium. Each branch of our scout troop goes on a weeklong summer camp each year, and every couple of years the AvEx, the age group I'm a leader for, heads somewhere abroad. Holzheim is in the part of Belgium which used to belong to Germany (I hope I'm not mutilating histoy here...) and most of the people who live there speak German. We camped on a farmer's field on a barrow. Fairly windy and no protection from the rain or sun - not that we had much of the latter; the camp's theme was The 4 Elements, but water definitely dominated.
If any of the scout-photogs out there have pics of their latest camp, feel free to post links in the comments and let me know if you had more luck with the weather.
