Weekend Camp

Please let your child help you pack, so that they know where everything is.  Also please make sure that everything is named, including their Kneckerchief and uniform top.  No Sweets please.

When packing kit it is a good idea to pack similar items in separate plastic bags, they can then find the items easier and hopefully keep their clothes tidier in their bags during the camp.  If you have several children attending the camp, please make sure that each child has their own kit in their own bags.  Please don’t let them bring high energy drinks, games consoles, mobile phones, pen knifes, etc.

No responsibility for personal equipment, clothing & effects can be accepted by the Leaders & the Scout Association does not provide automatic insurance cover in respect of such items.
