About the event

Elements of Scouting is back!

Come along and join our patrol style camp for Scouts aged 10 -14. 

Patrols will camp independently on one of three sub camps where they will be supported by a team of subcamp staff. They will have the opportunity to learn and develop their camping skills in a supportive environment whilst having loads of fun and hopefully making some new friends along the way! 

On arrival at camp patrols will be assisted in setting up their campsites; over the weekend they will cook meals on fire, take part in lots of Scouting activities, wide games, campfires, and a Scouts own.

There will be skills workshops in:

  • Axe and saw safety.
  • Food storage & hygiene
  • Making gadgets

And opportunities to try out lots of other activities such as pioneering and bushcraft skills. The full programme will be available soon.

We got some great feedback from last year's attendees:

‘ My son loved it, he’d go back tomorrow if he could!’

‘Great skills for all Scouts’

‘Great to meet Scouts from other areas = new friends’

 All Scouts attending will complete the requirements for the Outdoors Award* and the campers activity badge*. A full list of all badge requirements met will be published following the camp. (* except nights away)
