MERSEA MAYHEM - July 2019

Do you fancy a laid back weekend of fun and activities on a quiet campsite in East Mersea?  If so this could be the camp for you.  However  we have to limit the numbers to 24 due to the activities we want to do, the tents we are using and to make sure all have a fantastic time and gets the most out of the weekend.


The activities we plan to include are ‘Beach Art’, Sports, Games, Competitions and a Sedan Chair Race - on a Sedan Chair you will have to build over the weekend.  There will also be a BBQ for Scouts and Parents/Family Members on Sunday afternoon.


As we have quite a few camps this year we have kept the cost of this one down to just £25.  This includes all camp fees, food and activities but does not include transport to Mersea Island and back.


For full details and to book a place, log into the Parent Portal on OSM.  

MICROLIGHT FLYING - Saturday 28th September

Ever wanted to take to the sky's?  Now’s your chance.  We will be spending a day in Kent where Scouts will get the chance to fly a microlight (under instruction).  It’s something we have never done before and will no doubt prove to be really popular (just like gliding last year).


Bookings for current members will open via OSM Parent Portal in August so they should keep an eye on their email.  If you are thinking of joining you may get to go too!

SCOUTFEST 2019 - Friday 20th - Saturday 21st September

It’s back!  After a years back, ScoutFest is returning.  This is a sleepover with a difference.  Camping out on the field, there will be live bands, a disco dome, craft activities, karaoke, campfire and more!


Scouts can set their tents up the night before so on the day they can arrive and join in with the activities straight away.


Full details of times, which bands we have playing etc will be handed out at the end of August.

JAMBOREE ON THE INTERNET - Saturday 19th October.

Once again we will be joining in with the World Wide Event called JOTI.  This is where the Scouts wil be able to communicate with other Scouts from around the world and find out about their Scouting, country and culture.


There will also be other activities to do throughout the day such as making an electronic kit, a podcast, some green screen filming, games consoles and a movie (or two).


Places will be limited to just 20 so Scouts should book asap when they open on OSM Parent Portal .


USA THEMED SLEEPOVER - Friday 29th November

A popular theme for a sleepover when the Scouts were asked what they want to do in 2019/2020 was USA.


The night will involve Gold Gate Bridge, Statue of Liberty, Food, Flag, Quiz, a Fancy Dress competition, Films and a whole heap of fun.


Start time will be 8pm with pick up by 8am the following morning.  The venue is the Scout HQ.

MEGAZONE - Friday 6th December

The ‘Christmas Night Out’ this year will be at Megazone.  Megazone is the ultimate lasertag experience. It is based in a 6000 square foot abandoned warehouse where the Scouts will get to wage war against each other using state-of-the-art laser tag technology. They can battle over 2 storey's, through swirling smoke and leaking tunnels.  Points are scored by blasting enemies and destroying bases.


We have negotiated a great price for the Scouts and three games of twenty minutes each will only cost £10 in total!


It would normally cost a lot more than this so we expect all 36 places will get booked up very quickly.

News & Letters

OSCARS 2019

Once again it was an awesome night.  What made it even more special was that it was the 10th Anniversary of the award night.  What started as small idea is now a a very special night in the Troops annual calendar. As expected, all the Scouts were very smartly dressed as they sat down to find out who had won what for the various categories THEY had voted on. For all the results, photo\video montage and link to buy the ‘Annual Photo Book’, just click on the logo.


Some Scouts are already asking when the next Oscars is - but they have to wait 12 months for that.

NORFOLK 19

The camp is now over.  It was a brilliant time with everyone trying something new.  Whether it was pedal karts, crate stacking or something more extreme such as the high ropes or paintballing.  There was loads for all to enjoy and even time for swimming on the way home.  The campsite in Norfolk (Eaton Vale) was excellent and couldn’t be faulted - no doubt we will return in the future.
