This year’s family camp is being held on the weekend of 9th and 10th May 2020 at the famous Gilwell Park, the HQ of the Scout Association.
The camp is designed to be a fun weekend away and to give parents the opportunity to try some of the activities that the Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers enjoy at their meetings and camps and share in the experiences that they have heard so much about!
Camping is in family groups for sleeping, so you will need a tent, but no other experience is necessary and there will be plenty of help on hand to “pitch in” with getting you set up, even if you have never camped before.
Everything else from catering to the activities is organised in groups so you will be guided all the way for an exciting weekend of activities, including a Saturday night camp fire with the legendary Weston Green Scout Leader Chorus – something not to be missed so bring your own wine glasses and ear plugs!
The site and some of the activities can be seen here (https://www.scoutadventures.org.uk/centre/gilwell-park).
The Camp will be from Saturday morning to Sunday afternoon, but the leaders will be at site on Friday evening. So, if you want to join and set up early you are more than welcome. It should be a great weekend and we look forward to seeing as many families as can make it.
