Winter camp (click here for pics)

Last Saturday we had our first camp of the year at Scarisbrick Hall campsite. 17 cubs and scouts attended withe some of the cubs attending their first camp. Tents were pitched and then they had to prepare their bolagnese and potatoes for cooking on the fire. We ate tea then sat and chatted around the fire before bed. We awoke to ice on the tents so sub zero camping badges for those that don’t already have them! Click on the title for pictures 

Summer Camp 2016

Summer Camp 2016

Following the success of this year’s summer camp I am delighted to advise you that, subject to there being enough interest, we intend to run another summer camp from July 23rd to July 30th 2016. Currently we expect the camp to be in North Devon at a locally run Scout Camp site. The camp will involve practical skills session (including a re-run of “survival camp”) and more adventure seeking activities such as an introduction to surf boarding.

Before we undertake any detailed planning we need to assess how much interest there would be for this camp so I am now asking for firm commitments to attend; if your child(ren) wish to attend (minimum age 8 on July 23rd 2016) then please return the form below to your child’s section leader.

The estimated cost is £265-280 per member – this covers transport to and from camp, food and all activities. We realise that this is a large sum and consequently we are in the process of opening a Camp account to allow payments in instalments.

We will also nearer the time give an option for the purchase of camp clothing (T-shirts, Hoodies etc) – these proved popular this year but I stress that this is only an option. The camp colours will remain turquoise and blue and it will be perfectly acceptable to wear Hawkhirst kit during the camp (the leaders will be!).

Should your child wish to attend this camp please return the form below together with a deposit of £30 to a leader (or direct to me at 15 Longfield, L37 3LD) by the end of September.
