St Thomas of Aquinas PFG Camping Trip – weekend of 13th/14th Jan 2017

How would everyone like to go camping….in tents….in a campground…..not in the Presbytery back garden???

And a year later we did it!!

As usual, our prayers were answered and the weather turned out fine. Eight families arrived to set up on Friday afternoon at Spencer Park, with a range of fairly experienced campers to first timers (who were very excited, but also a little apprehensive).

The tents went up with ease, up went the gazebo with tables and chairs underneath, out came the kettle….essential camping equipment.

What a great weekend we had…fantastic food, fun on the playground, badminton, bouncing on the giant pillow, roasting marshmallows, spotlight and and adventurous night walk, mini golf, swimming at the beach, meeting new friends…and that’s just some of what we did!

But most of all great company, real family fellowship and the best camping trip ever!
