Our group has recently benefited from a grant award to help facilitate a group camp. The planned camp will be significantly subsidised and be available to all members of our Scout group. To my knowledge no other group is benefiting from such an award.
The proposition made by myself to the grant provider was to arrange a camp that would be a memorable experience for every child within the group.
In order to facilitate the camp we will require significant assistance from parents, all of whom will be need to be CRB checked. This should not deter parents, as the check is not invasive and free. It will allow parents to assist and attend on future planned activities and upon section meetings. We need adults – to assist with transport, activities during the camp, and some to ‘stay over’. This will ensure a memorable experience and safe camp for everyone.
Should insufficient adults volunteer to assist the camp will be cancelled and the grant provider refunded. All deposits paid by parents will be refunded also.
Each adult will need to provide for their own food costs, and each child will need to pay a ‘nominal amount’ to secure a place. The balance of the costs will be met by the group via this award – to include activity costs, indoor accommodation, transport and food (children).
Our planned venue is ‘Thriftwood activity centre’ (Brentwood) on the Fri 15th to Sun17th March 2013. www.thriftwood.org.uk
Beavers will be attending Saturday only.
