SUMMER CAMP with the
Wildfire Explorers & 1st Sandstone Scout Group
Our summer camp this year will be on
21 - 23 June 2019
Cheshire Scouts Forest Camp and Activity Centre in Delamere Forest.
Beavers will attend Saturday morning to Sunday morning (22 - 23 June)
Forest Camp is located in the heart of Delamere Forest and provides a number of individual campsites and on site activities. We will be based at, and have exlusive use of, one of the two main buildings which will provide kitchen, shower and toilet facilities and a main meeting room although we will not be using it for sleeping accommodation unless the weather is unduly inclement. Explorers and Scouts will be occupying the adjacent tented village, Cubs will be living in 3 person tents on the neighbouring campsite, and Beavers will be sleeping in 6 or 8 person tents on the next campsite. Beavers have the option of sleeping indoors, although in all previous years they have all elected to sleep in tents! Throughout the Saturday night when the Beavers are present there will be at least one Leader up, awake and on duty to attend to any Beaver who needs help or assistance.
Catering will be centralised, allowing maximum time for activities.
We expect the programme for Explorers, Scouts and Cubs to include rafting, air rifle shooting, high ropes and single pitch climbing on the 30 ft climbing tower although no one will be compelled to undertake any activity with which they are not comfortable. The Beavers will follow a separate programme run by the Beaver Leaders. There will be a group campfire on the Saturday evening.
Scouts and Cubs will assemble at the the car park of Bickerton Village Hall
at 5.00 pm on Friday 21 June. We will leave no later than 5.30 pm and travel
to and from Delamere Forest by minibus and cars. Everyone should be in uniform,
with ONE rucksack or bag containing all their personal kit and a packed tea
to eat on arrival at camp. Those dropping off young people for camp are asked
to leave the Village Hall car park as quickly as possible as space will be
limited. Explorers who are attending the School Prom on Friday 21 June may
arrive on Saturday morning but must arrange their own transport to camp.
Beavers will assemble at Bickerton in time to depart at 9:00 am.
Scouts and Cubs will return to the Scout Hut together on the afternoon of
Sunday 23 June.
Beavers will return to Bickerton at 11:00 am on Sunday.
Camping away from home is central to successful scouting and is a valuable experience which the children are likely to remember for the rest of their lives.
