BIG CAMP starts on Friday.  Please read this important notice with some final information.

Can all parents of Scouts attending BIG CAMP please make sure that you have read the information sheet that has been posted on the BIG CAMP page of this web site.  Please especially take note of the arrival and departure arrangements and ensure that you arrive at camp on time at 19:00.  We reiterate that the camp is going to be very busy, so please allow extra time for your journey and prepare to be patient on arrival.  All Scouts should arrive at camp in their uniform shirts and neckers.

We will be serving a late supper on Friday evening, but there will be no evening meal provided, so please make sure your son or daughter has eaten before coming to camp.

There are some additional items of personal equipment that your son or daughter should bring.  Please send them with a white T-shirt.  Sorry, I don’t know why, but the organisers have asked for it.  They should also have a T-shirt to wear over their swimwear if they take part in any of the water activities.  We would also recommend that they take a camping chair or stool.

Finally, we hope all Scouts have a great weekend.

Outstanding payment and forms for BIG CAMP required this week

   |   By

If you need to make the final payment, or have yet to complete the Permission form for BIG CAMP, these must be received at Scouts this week.

With only just over one week to go, we need to receive all outstanding payments and completed permission forms this week.  If you need to download a copy of the permission form or review any of the letters to confirm the final payment amount then please view the BIG CAMP page on this web site.

Friday 9th March

   |   By

The overnight camp advertised on the programme for 9th March will now be a sleepover.

Unfortunately, due to a booking at the Scout Hut for a children’s birthday party we are unable to do the planned overnight winter camp on Friday 9th March.  Instead, this will be a sleepover and will finish at 09:30 on Saturday 10th March.

BIG CAMP is now closed

   |   By

The BIG CAMP has proved to be very popular with our Scouts, but all spaces have now been taken so we cannot accept any more bookings.

Keep an eye on the web site for more news about BIG CAMP as we get closer to the event.

Don’t forget it is Scouts tonight.

   |   By

Scouts re-starts tonight after the half term holiday.

We will be meeting at the Scout Hut at the normal time of 19:15, and will be making pancakes.  Make sure you come in uniform, but also bring on old t-shirt to change into if you want. Pancakes can be a messy business.
