Hallowtree Group Camp 2020

Dear Parents/Carers,

Some of you will be aware that we were considering a camp abroad next year as part of the groups 50th anniversary celebrations, and we’d like to thank those who expressed an interest. Unfortunately, due to the number of qualified adult volunteers unable to commit to a full week abroad, coupled with the group’s desire to create an inclusive event which all young members will have the opportunity to attend, we have had to take the decision to revise these plans.

The leadership team have now planned an adventurous group camp during the summer holiday period next year which will take place on 9-15th August 2020, at in Suffolk. This will offer a full week of exciting opportunities, outdoor camping, a chance to meet young people from other groups, and many adventurous scouting related activities. We are excited that the week will also include a full day of water activities at .

The scout group have agreed to subsidize the cost of the camp considerably, so we able to offer the entire week at a cost to parents of £250, which we feel offers excellent value for money considering this includes a more extensive range of activities than we would have been able to offer abroad.

Please note that parents will be required to arrange transport for the young people both to and from Hallowtree.

We would like to invite all parents and carers to a meeting at 1st Drayton Scout HQ on 6th December at 19:30 where will be able to give you more information with regards to the logistics of the camp, and details of chances between now and August for us to ensure your young people are confident enough and suitably equipped to take part. We will also be able to answer any queries you may have.

In order for us to understand the number of young people attending and to finalise our booking at Hallowtree we would like to ask for confirmation that your young people would like to attend, along with a £50 deposit to secure their place on the camp. Please complete the slip below and return no later than 31st January 2020.

Kind Regards,

1st Drayton Scout Group
