Scouts & Explorers may keep hold of their medication, so long as their leader is aware. All medicines should be in a sealed container/zip bag, with your child’s name on and information of what the medicines are and how they should be administered.


There is a small shop on the campsite, however, money should be limited to no more than £10.00. Scouts and YL’s are responsible for their own money.

We discourage the use of any electronic devices, including cameras, phones & tablets, as we are NOT insured for any loss or damage, nor are we able to charge up the devices.

Parent Contact:

As much as you may miss your child, please be brave and do not try to contact them either via phone or notes/letters/reminders of home. We have found that this may induce homesickness and unsettle your child. We will contact you if there are any issues.
