Summer Camp 2016

NorthumberlandThis year we are planning to hold our Summer Camp in Northumberland.  Please see below and the attached letter for details.

We are all very much looking forward to our Summer Camp later in the year.  2016 is what we call a “fallow” year, which means that we will be camping on our own without our Dutch friends, the Guides, Explorers or other sections in the Group.  This year we will be visiting a part of the country we know very well, the stunning Northumberland coast.

To help us with our planning we need to know who will be attending camp.  Below you will find a link to the first letter about camp which includes a form to return along with payment of a deposit.

For immediate attention – Fire Station tour this Friday

exclamation markGreat news.  We have been able to secure a tour around Ilkley Fire Station this Friday, 27th November.  Please see below for details of the meeting.

This is a great opportunity to learn about the Fire Service and how they help keep all of us in the Ilkley area safe and respond to emergencies.  Not only is it a great thing to know about but it will also contribute towards the Fire Safety Badge.

Please meet at the Ilkley Fire Station at the normal meeting time of 19:15.  Scouts should be collected from the Fire Station at the normal closing time of 21:15.  Full uniform must be worn.

Winter Camp – Kit List

If your son or daughter is going to the Winter Camp then take a look at the suggested kit list.

Camping in winter is a little different to the spring or summer, with the weather generally wetter or colder – or both.  We have prepared a suggested kit list with ideas of the personal equipment you may want to take.  It is really important that you have full waterproofs and warm clothing.  A warm hat and gloves and plenty of layers are good things to take, and remember your walking boots and thick socks.  There is also less daylight so remember your torch and spare batteries.
