Going to Hesley Wood Scout Centre

Our summer camp for 2022 will be returning to Hesley Wood. This camp will offer two nights under canvas and learning the skills needed to camp effectively.

When? Saturday 27th August to Monday 29th August

Who for? Beavers, Cubs and Scouts all weekend, with Squirrels visiting on 28th August

Where? Hesley Wood County Scout Campsite, Chapeltown, S35 2YH

How much? £20 per person (subsidy and funding available if this is a barrier)

What will we be doing? The young people will be enjoying water activities (subject to enough rainfall to fill the lake) along with getting back to basics with fires, woodland skills and more. The various activities available will work towards many different badges

Donations? 186th Sheffield Scout Group pride ourselves on being financially inclusive and charging families only for the costs we need. However, to enable this to happen we need to fundraise in other ways to allow us to purchase the ongoing equipment and resources we need. We therefore invite parents who are able to donate on top of the camp fee to visit http://paypal.me/186sheffield to make a one-off payment or to include it with their payment. The suggested amount is £5-£10.

Help with costs? We understand that the cost of the camp may be difficult for some families. We want to make sure every child gets to enjoy Scouting and participate in all activities, no matter the financial background. Please speak to Ashley or Craig if you feel there may be a financial barrier to your child attending. If you would rather not speak in person, please text or email Ashley. As part of this camp there will be opportunities to access funding and a subsidy. Talk to us too about equipment, we have a few spares we can loan to save you the cost of buying them new.

To confirm your child’s place please complete and return the forms (available at Monday and Friday sessions) as soon as possible and no later than 18th July 2022.
