Camp Free at The Fort - Book now!

10 Oct 2018

Calling all Colonies, Packs, Troops and Units, Leaders, Groups and South London Scouting folk...

We have two very exciting weekends planned at The Fort exclusively for South London Scouts, all sections welcome!

17th - 19th May 

13th - 15th September

Camp on either or both of the above dates at the South London Scout Centre - The Fort, for free with your section/group/unit. We hope to run some organised 'drop in' activites on the Saturday of both weekends (subject to uptake), Sundays are free to run your own programmes.

We really would love to see many sections/groups/units from across the county coming along to these weekends, it's going to be great fun, and we will share the finalised activities when they have all been confirmed! Here are some of the activities discussed so far: shooting & archery, bouncy castles, search & rescue display, BSAC display, St Johns display, county caving team, county air team display, Mobile climbing tower, tuck shop, bushcraft skills, campfire songs.(all subject to final numbers booked).

Please spread the word with as many South London Scouting folk as you can. Let’s make these weekends something the kids won’t forget!
