All about your adventure

BROADNESS FARM

Summer Camp is our outdoor highlight of the year and is all about 
Adventure, Friendship, Teamwork and new Experiences…

During a week at Summer Camp, Scouts will live, cook and try new activities as 
part of a team, teaching independence while having FUN!

Broadness farm is situated on the shores of Bassenthwaite Lake in the heart of the Lake District and is the ideal location for Adventures in Cumbria and surrounding areas

We’ll be camping in tents on a ‘greenfield’ site, this is a back-to-basics 
camping with no electricity or hot running water (although we will be bringing in chemical toilets again and will rig up solar showers for a little bit of luxury)

FIRST TIME CAMPER?

Families of those new to Scouting can rest assured that camp is a very
structured and disciplined activity - Kit and living inspections are carried out daily as well as training in cooking, hygiene and camp craft to ensure the well-being of each young person

While at Camp, youngsters are expected to have some independence and
spend much of the camp living as part of a Patrol with their Patrol leader at
the head of the team


Finance

Summer camp costs £200 to attend and includes all activities, food, transport and a souvenir Hoody and T-Shirt!

To secure your place, please pay a £50 deposit

The remaining £150 should be paid in full by Tuesday 2nd July

Deposits and payments represent your commitment to attend and are therefore non-refundable.

Support

Limited funds are available in the form of a grant to families in greatest need - If the cost of camp is out of reach, a grant towards some of the cost may be available

Please contact your section leader to discuss confidentially in the first instance

Scouts should not miss out because money is an issue - We believe that opportunities for young people should come before the availability of money
