Big Camp 2020

Posted on September 20th, 2019 by Webmaster

WHAT WILL YOU BE DOING DURING THE SPRING BANK HOLIDAY 2020? (22nd – 25th May)

NO IDEA?? – THEN READ ON.

You and all members of the 11th are invited to join up to 5000 other Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorers & Leaders at the West Yorkshire Scouts BIG CAMP to be held at the Yorkshire Show Ground, near Harrogate.

There are over 250 on site, exciting daytime activities planned, with something for all age groups, along with lots of entertainment in the evenings.

Scouts & Explorers will arrive on Friday, for 3 nights of camping; Cubs on Saturday, for 2 nights. Beavers will also join us on Saturday to camp for one night.

See the video’s below for an idea of the activities on offer and what has happened in previous years.

Big Camp 2015 Highlights

Costs
The cost of the camp will vary, depending on whether your child is a Beaver, Cub, Scout or Explorer.

i.e. The charges being made by West Yorkshire Scouts for the campsite facilities and activities are as follows:-

Scouts & Explorers – £50
Cubs – £40
Beavers – £30

Clearly, on top of these figures will be transport and catering, which would increase the cost quite considerably.
However, Spen Valley District has agreed to pay the transport costs and because the group is in a healthy financial position, the executive committee has agreed that all members attending the camp will receive a 50% subsidy, which brings the overall cost down to:-

Scouts & Explorers – £25
Cubs – £20
Beavers – £15

If you would like your child to attend the Big Camp during the weekend of 22nd – 25th May 2020, please speak to one of the section leaders, on or before Friday 1ST November.
