Group Camp 2022 (provisional)

Location and details to be confirmed, but in the meanwhile:-

The camp will likely run from 10:00 on (tbc) through to 15:00 on (tbc). Please try and arrive in good time to get your child(ren) and their kit from the car park and signed in/any medicines handed over etc. BY 10:00 on Saturday.

If you can help us get the tents and kit to the site please let us know – the usual plan is to meet at the school on Friday evening (18:00 – 18:30) and load up ready to take it to the campsite on Saturday morning.

Tents will be provided for Beavers/Cubs and Scouts, BUT NOT FOR PARENTS, LEADERS or SIBLINGS – you need to bring your own.

The kit list for young people and some other bits and pieces of useful info is below:
