For the Scouts/Explorers, there is an idea that they will hike or cycle to the camp, and so the drop off time will be different. To be confirmed.


The purpose of the camp is to give the cubs, scouts and explorers, the age relevant experience of being independent, sleeping outdoors, through a fun, hands on activities. It will give the leaders more time to work on badges with the children.

The camp will be run in strict accordance with the Policy, Organisation and Rules of British Scouting, including required numbers of adults to children, safety checking, and risk assessments.

  • The cubs will be supervised by the cub leaders
