The District Camp this year will be at Lyons Copse from 17th – 19th May.

Lyons Copse – Solent Scout Training Centre

This will be similar to last year and we will provide our own activities.  There is an outline plan below.

The cost will be £35 per Scout with £20 retained by the Troop for costs (food / Transport) and £15 to District to cover camp fees etc.

Rough Plan: 

  • Friday – arrive and pitch camp
  • Saturday – activity bases; wide game; campfire
  • Sunday – Scouts’ Own; activity; strike camp
  • Self catering – each troop to sort out their own menu and catering
  • Activities: Run by us.  I have booked the archery, shooting and axe throwing ranges for us to run these activities ourselves.  We can have a carousel of activities such as backwoods cooking etc.  Troops to supply additional activities.

Volunteers are also required to run whole camp activities: wide game, scouts own, campfire.

Each Troop is to risk assess their own camping.
