MUSIC SLEEPOVER - Friday 3rd April

An evening of activities and games based around the Theme of Music.  Expect Dance Nation on the Wii, a bit of Karaoke and some maybe the High School Musical Films?  There will also be a fancy dress competition.  Who will dress up as the best ‘Famous Pop Star’?

PEAKS 2020 - Friday 22nd - Monday 25th May

We will be returning to the Peak District at the end of May.  It will be an active and fun long weekend with activities including Climbing, Hiking, Mountain Biking, Caving, Museum Visits, Steam Train Rides, Games, Crafts Films and watching the local wheelbarrow race.


This camp only comes round every two years and is a brilliant weekend that all those that go say is one of the best ones they have done.  Many return for a second time if they are too old and have had to leave Scouts!


As usual the maximum we will be able to take will be 20 Scouts due to the room sizes.  Bookings will open in the Autumn of 2019.

BUNKER BASH 2020 - Saturday 6th - Sunday 7th June

An afternoon and evening of fun, excitement and adventure at the ‘Secret Nuclear Bunker’. We will take part in the ‘Nuclear High Ropes’ during the day before moving into the bunker for food. Afterwards there will be activities and ‘Crystal Maze Challenges’ throughout the evening. Expect there to be free fall abseiling, target sports, puzzles and quizzes and a film into the early hours.


After breakfast Scouts will then emerge to the surface.  Depending on cost, we may so the ‘Wild Forest’ on Sunday morning before going home just before lunch.

CARDBOARD CAMP AND COOK OUT- Friday 3rd June

It’s our Summer Sleepover - but different again to previous years.  This time Scouts will build shelters outside the HQ from cardboard and tarps.  Once done, they can then sit in the (hopefully) warm evenings sun and cook supper on open fires.  We will make sure the fires aren’t too close to the shelters though as we don’t want any stray sparks setting them on fire!


Full details of what to bring and the timings will be sent out a few weeks before - but start collecting card board in April\May or you won’t have enough to build a home for the night.

ESSEX INTERNATIONAL JAMBOREE 2020 - Saturday 1st - Saturday 8th August

Our summer camp in 2020 will be to the Essex International Jamboree in Chelmsford.  We will join thousands of Scouts and Guides from across the world for a week of international fun and adventure at the UK's biggest Jamboree.


It only comes along every four years and most Scouts only ever get the opportunity to attend one Essex Jamboree.  It is expected that there will be around about 10000 participants there!


Bookings have closed and we have paid our deposit.  However, if anyone now wants to go, contact a leader ASAP and we will see if we can increase our numbers.
