Two weeks to go to Summer Camp

By on
In public Light Blue Troop /

Squirrel WoodIn just two weeks time we will be on camp.  Please take this opportunity to check that you are clear on all the arrangements.

Visit the Summer Camp 2014 page where you can see all the circulars that have been issued and refresh yourself on the arrangements for camp.  By now you should have:

  • Made the final payment
  • Completed the Nights Away Permission Form giving emergency contact details and important health and dietary information
  • Checked out the suggested kit list

Please note below some important information:

Personal equipment

Please bring your child’s personal equipment to the Scout Hut on Thursday 14th August between 18:00 and 19:00.  Please make sure that your child’s bag is clearly labelled with their name and their section, SCOUTS.

Spending money

We will be running a “Camp Bank” during the week.  You can deposit your child’s spending money into the bank and we will keep it safe until they need it.  We suggest a maximum of £10.  If you want to take advantage of this, please bring the money on Thursday 14th August when you bring the personal equipment, and give it to Mrs Hopi.

Cakes & buns

As with last year, we would be extremely grateful if parents could provide some cakes / buns for “elevensies” during the camp.  These will be used for ad-hoc snacks for the Scouts during the week.  Please bring these on Sunday when your child sets off for camp.

Set off

Please make sure your child is at the Scout Hut for 09:30 on Sunday 17th August to catch the coach to camp.  Full uniform must be worn.  Bring with them a day rucksack with waterproofs, packed lunch, a water bottle that can be used during the week and a change of clothes (t-shirt and shorts) so they can get changed out of uniform when they get to camp.

Finally, I hope everyone is looking forward to camp.  If you have any other questions, please let us know.
