We are holding a County Cub camp from 12th-14th July 2019 at Queenford Lakes, near Berinsfield, at the lake where they operate the “Wet’n’Wild” Aquapark
It will be a green field camp with a large flat camping field with access to water and with space for hundreds of the County’s Cub Scouts. We do not anticipate the camp being as big as Cub-Fest in 2016 and numbers will be limited so please book early to avoid disappointment.
The camp, which will run from Friday evening until Sunday afternoon, will have an international theme with each of the Districts representing a continent (or region in some cases) of the world – see below. The camp will include a grand opening ceremony, parade, day and night activities, a camp fire and much, much more.
We would like to see everyone dressed up for the parade on the Saturday night in the theme of their region:
- West Oxon: Asia
- Oxford Spires: North America
- North Oxon: Europe
- Thames Ridge: Africa
- Thames Chiltern: Oceania
- King Alfred: Latin America
Activities will be based around three zones; Land, Sea and Air and will provide Cubs with the opportunity to undertake all sorts of activities including climbing, laser tag, axe throwing, pioneering, fire lighting, high ropes, circus skills, zorbs and segways, to name but a few.
The administration of the camp will be run via EMS with all health forms to be completed online. The cost per Cub will be £50 which will include camping, activities and evening entertainment BUT NOT FOOD. There will be a £5 charge for leaders/adult helpers on camp.
For Explorers attending the camp –
If they are attending as Young Leaders with their group they will be charged £5, the same as an adult.
For an Explorer Unit that signs up to help centrally with the camp there will be no charge to the Explorers.
We will not be providing centralised catering for this event, therefore it is up to Groups and/or Districts to make arrangement as they see fit.
To help with the running of activities please note that all Packs will be expected to provide adults to help run activities over the weekend – the number required will be based upon the number of young people attending. A programme of where and when you need to provide adults will be sent to you nearer the time but only once all information has been collected and finalised on EMS. All adults staying overnight will need a current DBS check for the duration of the camp.
The booking system will open at the end of July 2018 and all leaders that have returned the reply slip or registered via the google form (coming soon) will be contacted via email to confirm that it is open.
Final numbers and all monies will need to be paid by 19th April 2019 (Good Friday).
Heath forms will need to be completed online and all DBS checks completed for adults on camp by 31st May 2019.
We are looking for volunteers to patrol the campsite including some night shifts! If you are willing to help out please email firstname.lastname@example.org
