Summer Camp 2013

CampingDetails about Summer Camp in 2014 are now available, and Scouts are encouraged to sign up and take part.

Last week the Scouts were given the first letter about summer camp next year.  This gave some of the basic details of the camp and asked you to sign up to participate in the camp.  No doubt that you are aware that our friends from De Mohicanen Scout Group in The Hague will be joining us on camp next year, and we are also asking for families to offer hospitality to our visitors.

A new page on this web site has been set up just for information about Summer Camp.  You will see it on the menu bar or can click here to go straight to it.  You will find a copy of the letter to download from this page, and please note that the closing date for deposits to be paid to sign up for camp is 13th December 2013.

If you have not been on a summer camp with Scouts before, or can’t remember how good camp was this year then have a look at our photos.  More photos of camp have been added to the photo gallery.  Take a look and then sign up for more fun and adventure in 2014.  Click here to go to the photo gallery.
