Camp kit list

General Notes


We would ask that your child travel to the Camp/Holiday in Full uniform.
Black bin bags are not suitable for bedding rolls as they tear very easily, with the result that the contents get lost or soiled in transit.
Please place wash-proof name labels in all clothing.
For everything else please label with either indelible ink and/or engraving as appropriate.
We operate a camp bank so Scouts can pay there pocket money into It upon arrival. We recommend £2.00 per day and possibly £3.00 for a badge at the end of camp this will be returned if no badge purchased.
Please place any money in an envelope with the scouts name and total on the front.
