It would be awesome if you could wear something creative, red, white and blue for the Queens platinum afternoon tea which is on Saturday.

Please bring a packed lunch for your family for the first day. Please ensure you are set up and ready for the 12:30 welcome meeting, flag break and meet and great your team for the weekend and your first challenge.

There will be many camp duties over the weekend so please look to see when and what your team will be involved in. the camp works better with everyone joining in helping with all the tasks. Help yourselves to tea coffee and squash whenever you want, you will be popular if you make it for many!

Please get involved in the camp, it’s a great chance for the whole family to experience Scout camp life, you’ll be surprised! The more you get involved the more you will get out of the camp and the more you will enjoy it.

Some activities you will get wet, please bring old trainers or boat shoes, NOT Crocs or flip flops.

You will get fed (a lot) 3 times a day but feel free to bring snacks and drinks for during the day and in the evening when we sit round the campfire, we generally have a glass or few of beer and wine in the evening. A camp chair is great to have for all the members of your family.

On the last day you will all need to help take down all of the group communal kit and pack the van. This is made much easier with many hands but a huge task if only done with a few!
