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.
