We will be holding our second Family Camp at the scout hut 27th-29th of September. The programme will be similar to the July Group Camp; pitching camp Friday evening from 18:30 and flag down midday on Sunday morning.
The idea is that your scout gets to show you first-hand what they get up to in Scouting!
The programme we have planned includes scout activities, an aerial runway, a scouting treasure hunt, air-rifle shooting, archery plus wide games and a camp-fire.
All members of your family are welcome, even if they haven’t been involved in Scouting.
The camp is for families to camp in family units; you will need to bring a tent, sleeping bag, plates etc. and suitable clothing for being outside.
Attached to this letter is a camp form and reply slip – please reply as soon as possible, at the very latest before Friday 13th September.
The cost will be £20 for adults and £10 for under 16s and FREE for pre-school children; this will include a hot dog on Friday evening, all meals Saturday and breakfast on Sunday. Note: Cheques will not be cashed until September.
I know many of you have already completed a parent-helper form, but for those that have yet to do so, please could you also complete the Scouting Occasional Helper form also attached. Once you have completed the OH form you will be covered by the Scout Association insurance during the camp so long as you return the form by the end of July. The form can look intimidating, but it isn’t as bad as it looks!
