Summer Camp 2010

Letters will be going out early September for next year's Summer Camp, but here's a sneak preview for our blog readers.

In view of the general economic uncertainty we've decided not to go to France next year. Instead we've opted for a UK venue, and the cost will be £195, the same as this year.

The dates will be Saturday 24th to Saturday 31st July 2010. As usual the camp will be open to Cubs, Scouts, and Explorers.

The venue will be Blackwell Adventure in Worcestershire. We've not been before but it's a fantastic site. Check out their website for further details.

You can start saving up, but please don't bring any money yet, as we're not geared up for it.

More details soon.

Beaver Wetlands Visit

Drop Beavers off at the centre on 5th September just before 10am with £4.50 (if you haven't already paid) and a packed lunch and drink. Wear uniform and suitable footwear for possible muddy conditions - and a coat if the weather isn't so good. Collect Beavers at 3pm. Any questions drop me an email using the link provided.

Scout Camp - Squirrel Wood

After the success of Summer Camp 2009, we just can’t wait to get back to the Great Outdoors. This time we’re off to Squirrel Wood near Doncaster for a weekend camp. It’s a site we’ve not been to for some time so it’s something not to be missed even for our veteran campers.

The camp dates will be from Friday 4th September (evening) to Sunday 6th September (afternoon) and will cost £15 per person. Drop off and pick up details will be finalised nearer the time.

We're asking for a £5 non-refundable deposit to secure a place. Last date for receipt of deposits is 26th August.

Beavers Upcoming Events

If you haven't already done so please make sure you book your place on either or both the Wetlands Centre event on 5th September and the Sleepover at Silverwood on 19/20th September. I have to finalise numbers as soon as possible. Email me via the blog.
Beavers will be running as normal for the rest of the summer.

Summer Camp - Thanks

Well that's Summer Camp over for another year - I hope you all had a good time. Can I just thank all the leaders and helpers who gave up their time to make it happen. We couldn't do it without them. No doubt we'll be uploading some photos in the next few days so watch this space.

If you have any items of clothing/equipment that don't belong to you, bring them up to cubs/scouts and we'll try and reunite them with their owner. If you're missing anything please check our lost luggage pile as soon as possible.

The next camp for Scouts will be a Patrol Camp that we're organising for the weekend of 4 - 6 September. More details soon.

Can I also remind you that August Subs are due this week.
