After our recent camp successes (in the leaders opinion and hopefully the children), we are going to do it again. I did have to pinch myself whilst writing that bit – just a sanity check, but yes we are going to subject ourselves to being outdoors, sleeping (ha ha Ok lying awake in a sleeping bag), setting fires – cooking bread, and getting wet (hopefully only in Lake Windermere!).

So the last bit gives you a clue we are planning to go to the Great Tower Scout Activity Centre next to Lake Windermere, a 250 acre site, under canvas for the Weekend of 29 – 31st August. More details on the dates below.

3 night stay (ie Thurs, Fri, Sat) – £55
2 night stay (ie Fri, Sat) – approx £40

Final costs dependent upon numbers and activities chosen.

ADULTS

Thank you for all the volunteers todate

Important bit: In order for this to happen, we the leaders will need help from you the parents, either in:
1. transportation to Windermere and back!,
2. staying over (some of the leaders can’t get time off to support the Thurs night. Chris and Alex are so far confirmed for Thurs onwards), doesn’t have to be the whole weekend.

Dependent upon the availability of adult support we may have to change the plans: so could be Friday pm onwards, and worst case limit numbers we can take.

NEXT STEPS

In order for us to start the detailed planning we need to know who is interested in this weekend, both Adults and Cubs/Scouts. So sorry it’s form time.

FINAL REMINDER – Form will be closed on Sat 12th latest (after this point sorry we cannot guarantee you can join camp). We need to finalise numbers for tent allocation and activities, if Great Tower needs information earlier we may have to close earlier!

We really hope that you can join us on the Adventure.
