  |   By  |  0 Comments

Dates:  Friday 27th June 6PM   ->   Sunday 29th June  4PM (approx)

Venue: Tolmers Scout Campsite, Tolmers Road, Cuffley, Herts

Cost:     First 3 Members of family – £35 pp

Subsequent members of family – £25 pp

Children under 6  –  £10 pp


You are invited to fun and activity filled weekend of camping , where members of the group can camp accompanied by parents, brothers sisters etc.

It will give family members a taste of the scout ‘experience’ – introducing them to the methods of the association and strengthening the links between Beavers, Cubs and Scouts.

Each family will camp as a family, but cooking (and eating) will be done centrally – as will the activities of which there are many

There are numerous activities planned over that weekend – some of the ones available are: orienteering, pioneering, canoeing, craftwork, pedal cars, photo hunt, bungee run and many more.

You may camp in your own tent as a family, but don’t be put off if you do not own a tent as the group are able to lend you one. Tolmers campsite is at the end of Tolmers Road in Cuffley (about 15 mins drive from Potters Bar) and is about 100 acres of prime camping grassland with a little bit of woodland


This Family camp is also a bit more special than other ones as we will be celebrating our 75th anniversary as a scout group with a lamb & pig roast evening. This will involve a reunion of past & present members and leaders, as well as games for the younger members.

An evening not to be missed!

A limited number of places have been booked for this camp  –   if you would like to attend please print off the family camp form in the downloads section, fill it out and either bring it to scouts or give directly to Chris Brunning.

The cut -off date for bookings is the 23rd of May 2014 – further details will be issued upon receipt of payment

This will be a chance to put into practice the scouting skills you have learnt during the course of your time with us; as well as making new friends and encountering the unique scout camping experience.

Some of the activities we intend to organise include – canoeing, swmming, hill walking, wide games , pioneering, rock climbing, sailing & a cooking competition.

All scouts taking part in this camp have been issued with further information (kitlist, health form etc)
