About the event

NEWS camp is back for 2019! 

This year’s camp takes place at Lapwing Lodge, near Paisley over the weekend 23–25 August. 

NEWS camp is an excellent way to start off the new session and make or rekindle friendships with people from all over Scotland. Come along to experience new activities and learn more about the opportunities within the Explorer Section and beyond.

This camp can also count towards an aspect of the Zodiac Award.

Camp programme

Friday night will bring everyone together for an evening activity and is a great time to catch up with Explorers from all over Scotland. 

On Saturday, Explorers will take part in an exciting team challenge. Explorers will be in teams of four so make sure you organise your team in advance and apply for this event as a team of four. 

You can take part in an exciting range of off-site and on-site activities on Sunday.

Explorers can attend on passports for this event and will camp on a Passport Subcamp over the weekend.

We only have 200 spaces, so if we fill the places before the deadline, applications will close. Remember you will need to apply as a team of four.

We really look forward to seeing you all at NEWS 2018!
