Dear Scouts and Parents,
We have now booked the venue for this year’s Autumn Scout
Camp and progress is now being made on finalising the programme. The Kit List is attached and it is important for Scouts to have the correct equipment and gear for this year’s camp especially a roadworthy bike and cycling gear along with waterproofs and warm clothing.
This autumn we are staying nearer home and going to be at Ellis’s Hill Farm, Sindlesham Road, Arborfield. See attached for map for directions. Over the
years we have used this location for many Scout Camps however we have not been
in more recent years. It is
in the middle of the woods behind Barkham Manor and when there you feel like
you are along way from home. The
theme this year is ‘The Great Escape (Chicken Run)’.
