Backwoods Cooking & Bivouacs - an introduction

Please bear with us if your favourite pages of old are not currently live, they soon will be.


12th April



Since this Group was closed I keep this site going as a tribute to the Group, its former members, and because of the vast amount of resources I built up over the years. To lose all this would be a travesty. I do all this at my own expense.

Should you find the site helpful and want to donate, please do so.
We're here to help - Scoutese in Plain English:
A Scout Group consists of a Beaver Colony + a Cub Pack + a Scout Troop [+ an Explorer Unit]
A Scout District consists of approximately 10 Scout Groups + Explorer Scout Units:
A Scout County consists of approximately 10 Scout Districts + Scout Networks;
The National Scout Association consists of all the Scout Counties.
Visit the Scoutese page for more translations.

Our policy on photographs is here.

If you have any photos you want including on the site, please e-mail them to me.

PhotoLens can provide most of the photographs on this site by clicking here.
For all your camping and outdoor needs we recommend Springfield Camping.
