Can you believe it…. We’re about to launch Camp 2017!
Following a hugely successful summer camp in 2016 we’ve wasted no time in preparing for Camp 2017.
The leadership team has sat down and looked at a number of options. While we haven’t finalised anything yet we can say it’s looking like the UK is our destination for Camp 2017
We are conscious that cost is a factor for a lot of families so this was taken into account as we’d love to break the numbers barrier from last year.
We had to limit the numbers for 2016 due to taking our own bus but this year it’s a case of the more the merrier! The more we have going, the less the cost is on the group.
Anyone who’s been on camp over the last few years will know the benefits of having a good number of Scouts and Venture Scouts going to camp: More People means a wider variety of activities to get involved with, more people means more chance to meet new Scouting friends and more people means a larger site with even more places and things to discover!
So for now… here’s what we know:
Possible/Probable Dates: 1st fortnight in July
Open too: Scouts & Venture Scouts
Next Steps: Register your interest with your section leader at your next meeting
What has now become an annual event; our weekend activity to Spike Island has been booked for October 7th – 9th next
Those sections attending from the Friday to the Sunday (Cubs, Scouts, Ventures) will cost €30 per head
The Beaver sections, who will make a day trip event on the Saturday, will cost €10 per head
Closing date, if not full before hand, for members to sign up to this evening is September 30th
We are limited with numbers attending due to the ferry capacity so please speak with your section leader at your next meeting to secure your place. Payment in full to your section leader will secure your place.
Please speak with your section leader ASAP. Some sections have other activities on around this time also
