WHAT'S IT ALL ABOUT?

We have held a Group Family Camp every few years and they have been greatly enjoyed by all who went.  This is a great opportunity for families from ALL our sections to come together for a fun weekend.

Briefly, the camp will run from late Saturday morning to lunchtime Sunday. We have already booked some of the camp activities, such as an assault course, air rifles, archery, high ropes, and others. In addition we will have our own activities, such as field games, wide games, other fun challenges and, of course, a campfire on the Saturday evening. In other words, there will be plenty of activities from which to choose. Or just sit and watch the kids kick a football about.

This web page has photos of a previous family camp.

FOOD

Sunday breakfast will be provided by the Group, as well as tea, coffee, squash during the camp. All other food should be brought by you (eg. lunch on Saturday and barbecue Saturday evening).

TENTS

Families attending will need to provide their own tents: it is our experience that most can borrow or beg adequate tentage, if not owned.

However, the Group will be able to lend a limited number of tents at low cost: contact us via the email address below.

SAFE AND HAPPY CAMP

Parents or designated guardians will remain responsible for their children throughout the camp. The leaders will not be able to take on that role.

In line with Scout Association rules, all adults attending the camp need a valid DBS clearance (criminal record check, to be blunt!): this ensures that all adults, who children (ours and other groups’) may encounter at the campsite, have such clearance. While many of our parents already have been DBSed, we need to get all others processed AND check that DBSes are valid (Scout Association and less than 5 years).

If you do have a DBS through Scouting, please complete the details on the registration form.

If you do not yet have DBS clearance (less than five years old and through the Scout Association), note that the DBS process may takes several weeks. For this we will need to do a face to face ID check and we will contact you to make arrangements to complete this before Easter. Because of the time to get clearance, adults without DBS clearance cannot be last minute campers!

THERE IS NO COST TO YOU FOR GETTING SCOUTING DBS CLEARANCE.

HELP US

Nearer the time we will be looking for some parents to help just before the event and, of course, clearing up after. Such help will make a big difference to the success of the camp, which is in addition to the activities our leaders are already organising.

MORE INFORMATION

More information will be posted later.

Near the camp we will send out advice on kit lists etc.
