These are some challenging days and it’s the children like you who have led the way in helping to cheer us all up.

Have you been drawing and painting rainbow pictures to spread a bit of hope and cheer at this difficult time?

If so, please send in your brilliant rainbow pictures to [email protected] so we can share them with the group and make a massive rainbow collage to spread the hope message further. If you haven’t already done one, get creative and make one to add to the collage.

Explorer Evolution Camp 2020

This is one of the best camps ever for all Explorers, just ask one of the lucky Explorers who
attended last year!

The cost of the camp includes transport, food & all activities.

So what do the organisers say about this event?

Main Event – constantly evolving…

You told us that you want a challenge, preferably one that is a surprise each year, so that is what we aim to deliver. Obviously, it is really hard to describe a surprise, so what can we tell you? We have a 3,000 acre site and surrounding land to set a dynamic route of between 10 and 30 miles, and a crack team of volunteers from across the country to make it happen! Who knows what this year will hold, all we do know is that the Evolution main event will be brilliant fun and test your teams and individual physical, mental and Scouting skills.

The Rest of the Weekend

With Friday and themed Saturday night entertainment – including a DJ live bands and traditional fairground games and inflatables – there will be lots to keep you entertained!

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.

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.
