District Camp 2018

The moment you have been waiting for, the booking system for District Camp 2018 is now open!

So just in case you’ve forgotten, here are the details again…

Where? Bibby’s Farm Scout Activity Centre, Chorley, PR6 9DL

When? 21st – 23rd September 2018

This year all sections including Beaver Scouts are welcome for both nights until the close of camp, however it has been agreed with the ADC Beavers that some groups may prefer that their Beavers only attend Saturday to Sunday (this is a group decision and all Beavers from that group need to attend from the Friday PM or the Saturday AM so we do not have mixed arrivals).
All Cubs, Scouts, Explorers (including Young Leaders) will travel up from the Friday until the Sunday. Scout Network members, members of Scout Active Support are also welcome throughout the weekend as part of our event support team. Obviously, all Group Leadership teams will be with their groups.

Theme? Round the World in 80 Days

We again will be aiming for an adventurous activities programme including climbing, abseiling, shooting, archery, axe-throwing, mountain-biking, low ropes, crate stacking and all manner of water activities. Following the camp in 2016 we have had requests to better organise the water activities to maximise the time on the water and will endeavour to do that.

£33 for Beavers (one night)
£37 for Beavers (two nights), Cubs, Scouts, Explorers (including Young Leaders)
£8 for Network, Leaders and Service Team.

What does the cost include?
The biggest costs are activities and transport. The cost includes all the activities (over 35 activities) including those onsite and offsite, the camp fees which includes full use of the site, coach transport, the infrastructure of the site (additional marquees/toilets etc), a camp badge. This price is comparable with many group camps and County Cub Camp, County Rally and County Explorer Scout Camp and we believe reflects great value for money.

What doesn’t it include?
Groups are being asked to organise their own catering for the weekend. For groups who haven’t got the equipment to cater outside, let us know and we will be able to pair you up with other groups so that it isn’t a problem.

How do I book on?
The booking system is online, all you need to do by the 13th July is confirm your numbers and pay your deposit.

Best Wishes
