About the event

Introducing a brand-new Scout event… Elements of Scouting. Get back into the swing of camping with 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. Scouts 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 wide games, campfires and a Scouts own. In addition to this the programme will include activities such as: 

Raft/ bridge building 

Bushcraft – backwoods cooking & knife skills 

Branding, leathercraft. Paracording 

Tomahawk throwing & Archery  

All Scouts attending will have the opportunity to complete the requirements for the Outdoors Award*, the campers activity badge* and Emergency Aid stage 3. (* except nights away) A full list of all badge requirements met will be published following the camp.

The camp will take place from 16th September - 18th September.

Good to know:

The cost of £180 for a patrol of six Scouts includes two nights camping, a full programme of activities, supper on both nights, a camp neckie and badge.

Transport to site and remaining meals are not included.

Each patrol will need a patrol tent, dining shelter and store tent. A full equipment list will be provided nearer the time.

Each patrol will supply their own meals for the weekend. Meals will be cooked over fire whenever possible. Further guidance on this will be provided nearer the time.

Applications are per patrol only (individual applications cannot be accepted) and will be on a first come first serve basis. There is capacity for 30 patrols.

Patrol members names/ details are not required to apply. These will be collected in August.
