2.17 The Camping Badge
The Camping Badge presents a pretty accurate representation of camping with children.
Triangle with a tent at night.
Betty doing chemistry with a poster of Einstein in the background. The poster of the periodic table has the Squirrels and Duggee as elements.
The Squirrels are playing with their teddy bears.
Duggee is packing his backpack for camping. They explain that camping is living outdoors in a tent. Duggee has his Camping Badge.
They head out for a walk and find somewhere to pitch as the sun goes down. As Duggee struggles with the tent, the Rabbits pop up to say they are on their carrot patch. They find another place to camp, this time they are on the lawn of some bugs. They finally get the tent up but find they are on the sheeps’ dinner. Duggee has an idea.
At last, they are cosy in the tent, but Tag can’t sleep without Sargent Smash, Happy want a glass of water, then he spills it on Betty, Roly is in Norrie’s sleeping bag, Duggee brings the wrong towel, Norrie has forgotten Zaza, Happy needs a change of clothes, Norrie wants an extra blanket and socks, Happy asks for water, then milk, Tag wants his torch, Norrie wants a book. Eventually, when Duggee has dealt with all the requests he falls asleep. The Squirrels are too excited to sleep. They hear an odd noise. Tag thinks it’s a monster. Norrie thinks it’s ants eating crisps. Betty thinks it’s a mouse opening a present. Happy thinks it’s a goat eating a book. They wake Duggee who goes outside and finds Enid scratching the tent. Duggee turns on the light and it turns out they were camping in the clubhouse.
