Instead of holding a jamboree to celebrate 70 years of Scouting, Burton Scouts decided to hold a "camporee".
The event was held at Newton Road playing fields in June 1977 and attracted more than 600 Cubs and Scouts.
The weekend included many things for the youngsters to try with the main attraction being a new game of push-ball using a giant-sized football.
During the camp, the Cubs and Scouts displayed their camp craft skills and also found time to enter a barrel-rolling competition as well as trying their hand at abseiling.
The highlight of the camp once the sun set was the traditional campfire with a sing-along.
Cubs from Stapenhill came prepared with the pack’s own newly-composed campfire song.
During the "camporee", the Cubs and Scouts were visited by East Staffordshire District Council chairman Councillor Hurdle and town mayor Joe Parker.
Representing the county’s Scouts was commissioner Peter Moxon. The only downside to the two-night camp was unexpected cold weather for the month of June.
