Centenary County Camp 2007 4th May – 7th May 2007
2007 is the Centenary of Scouting and to celebrate this important landmark Bedfordshire Scout Association is organising a county camp at Phasels Wood Scout Camp, near Hemel Hempstead (see "links" page).
Scouts, Cubs and Beavers (day visits only) from all over the county will be camping on this fantastic 3 day/night event.
Activities organised so far include the following:-
Abseiling, archery, climbing wall, crossbows, mini bikes, dragon slide, water rockets, air rifles, ice wall, cresta run, gladiator trial, circus skills, pot holing, laser clay shooting, giant games, technology zone, skittles, quad bikes, inflatable obstacle course, bouncy castles, bungee run pedal karts, with many more to be added over the next few months.
More details can be found at www.100bc.org.uk
And yes, before you ask Scouts, we will also be having a fire so that in true tradition you can go home with your clothes stinking of smoke!
The cost of the camp including all activities & food is likely to be around £35 per boy, however we are hoping to subsidise some of this from troop funds.
A special commemorative badge will be given to each person in attendance.
We hope that every scout will attend this once in a life time event.
As leaders we are also helping to organise other groups in our District to participate in this camp and would be grateful of as much parental help as possible particularly with transport, tent pitching and catering. If you would be willing to help out for the weekend, even if it is only for one day please let them know.
For us to assess numbers we would be grateful if you could let us know by e-mail, that you will or will not want to attend the camp. A £20 deposit will be payable before the end of term.
