The Adventure Continues – in the Isle of White

Members of the Halifax Boys’ Brigade will be travelling to the Isle of White on Saturday 4th August to spend a week camping under canvas.

The Boys’ Brigade has over 125 years experience of camping and have offered Children and Young People from all over the UK great opportunities to share fantastic camping experiences in a variety of different locations.

The Halifax BB Summer Camp has been a large appeal of being in Boys’ Brigade for many of their members each year.

On the Isle of White the lads have a non stop program of events and activities to take part in from the famous ‘Head Hunters’ (out door laser quest) to a day trip to Portsmouth.

The Halifax Boys’ Brigade would like to thank the ‘Russell Trust’ and ‘Constance green’ for their financial support towards the camp.
