Cub Winter Camp 2020

This will be based at the Scout Hut. Save the date and more details will be announced later in the year.

Cub Summer Camp 2020

The cost of this camp includes Transport, food, camp fees and activities. An exciting weekend camp at Beaudesert Scout Camp in Staffordshire on the edge of Cannock Chase. We will be camping in tents and cooking on wood fires and gas stoves.

The activities will include traditional camp activities such as widegames, tracking, backwoods cooking & campfire. We will also be enjoying some adventurous activities based on the site.

Cub Narrowboat Weekend 2020

The cost of this camp includes transport, food & boat hire. Scouts taking part on this weekend will be living on, crewing and operating a 12 berth narrowboat on the canal system around Rugby. They will be helming the boat, operating locks, cooking meals in the galley, learning how to maintain the boat and so on. This really is a hands on, active weekend.

There are only 8 places available on this activity.

District Camp 2020

This will be a brilliant camp which will see Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorers and adults from most of the Scout Groups in Nuneaton District camping together for a weekend of fun and activities. Activities may include zip wire, pedal karts, archery, shooting, abseiling, climbing, kayaking , rafting, craft and much more. All of the meals will be cooked in a central ‘cookhouse’ by a catering team so that everyone taking part can have the maximum amount of time on activities. The £35 camp fee includes all activities, food and camp fees. Parents will need to arrange transport to and from Willesley Scout Camp which is in Leicestershire.

We are also looking for a number of parents who would like to join us for the weekend to help us with catering, activities and supervising the youngsters as our leadership team will be at full stretch helping to provide the many activities during the weekend. The cost for parents is just £15 to cover food & camp fees costs. Please speak to Woody for more information.

Remembrance Day Parade 2019

Reminder for our members about Remembrance Day Parade.

All Cubs, Scouts, Explorers & uniformed Adults should attend this parade. Only those members with exceptional excuses will be excused from attending. Please can anyone who is unable to attend contact their Cub, Scout or Explorer Leader before the start of the parade.

Please make sure all members bring a warm, waterproof coat with them. If the forecast improves then we will carry the coats, but a coat is an essential.

Beavers

Beavers are asked to attend the first part of the parade.

When and Where?

Date: Sunday 10th November

Everyone needs to arrive at the Scout Hut between 9.45am and 10.00am. We will finish back at the Scout Hut at 2.00pm.

Anyone needing to leave earlier please speak to a Leader before the parade.

Beavers

Beavers need to arrive at the Scout Hut between 9.45am and 10.00am. Please collect them from the Cenotaph at 11.30am.

Uniform

Full & correct uniform must be worn and please make an extra special effort to ensure that uniforms are complete and especially smart. Beavers need to wear full & correct uniform including black, navy blue or dark grey ‘school’ trousers and plain black footwear. It is likely to be cold and as we will only be wearing coats if it is raining, it’s important therefore to wear extra layers of clothing under the uniform. Gloves can be worn if they are dark coloured.

Everyone is asked to wear a poppy.

Other Info

There will be a collection in church so if possible please bring some money for it. Any queries please contact us at [email protected] or [email protected] or speak to a leader at the hut.
