The Camp

Talking to the Cubs about the camp there was a few worried faces along with some excited faces, to put those worried faces into smiley faces and to put your minds at rest as parents this camp will be in the building shown in above picture.

The Cubs will be sleeping in bunk beds in dorms, 6 or 4 to a room depending on numbers, we have access to a fully fitted kitchen and toilet shower blocks all within the building. We will also have the sole use of this building.

Other Scouting Groups may be on site (Fields) the same time we are there but they wont be allowed into the building.

We as leaders still have to  plan for what were going to do for the weekend, but it will be FUN and they will be earning badges whilst were there, we may start a fire, cook on it, Climb a tree, build a den, go for a walk we just don’t know as yet.

Forms and Price

Camp Forms – please download and  complete the Permission to Camp and  Camp Medical Form (at the bottom of this page) and return To  Kestrel   by 1st of February and make the Payment of £35 per person on Parent Pay.

Kit List – it is very important that the Cubs pack their own kit. This means that when we get to camp, they should be able to find things. Please bring all the items on the list and get a name on everything including uniform and sleeping bags it is amazing what can get lost.


It is intended that transport will have to be provided by parents [please arrange sharing lifts].

Although, we have been offered a small Mini Bus to get us there, this depends on the number of Cubs attending, the initial additional cost would be £15 each  increasing if we don’t fill up the bus,  if you are interested in this option of mini bus that would be a pickup and drop off at Elm Ridge – can you email me ASAP so we can see if this option is worthwhile.

Last minute changes – Please let us know of any last minute health changes in the family eg. upset stomachs etc, however trivial, it could help us a great deal. If you have any regular or specific medicines remember to supply them and a permission to administer letter.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask, and please return the forms and make the  payment by Friday 1st of February

No need for money as no shops nearby, and NO KNIFES  on camp please .

Thank you
