There is a small shop on the campsite, however, money should be limited to no more than £10.00. Scouts and YL’s are responsible for their own money.

Electronic Devices:

We discourage the use of any electronic devices, including cameras, phones & tablets, as we are NOT insured for any loss or damage, nor are we able to charge up the devices.

Personal Equipment:

We have 35 people going to camp, therefore, your child’s personal kit, (clothes, boots, sleeping bag, plates and cutlery etc.), should marked with their name. For transportation, please put sleeping bags and roll mats inside a carrier/bin bag with your child’s name on, as it may have to be detached from their rucksack!

Young people’s own folding chairs are not required, due to limited space in the trailer. An empty drinking bottle will be useful for when attending activities.
