The Brent (6th Dartford) Scout Group
Friday 22nd May to Monday 25th May
Dear Parents & Carers
We had so much fun at last years Family Camp that we hope you will be able to join us with your family for this year’s camp to be held at Marshside Scout Campsite at Minster near Ramsgate Friday 22nd May – Monday 25th May (Long Bank Holiday weekend) please note this is the second bank holiday weekend in May. You now have the chance to camp as a family and take part in some of the activities that happen on a Beavers sleepover, Cub or Scout camp. We will be the only campers on the site, which consists of a large field, woods and a building with good washroom facilities. There is also another building further up the field with additional showers and toilets. We will use the building for the evening entertainment and for wet weather activities in the unlikely event of poor weather. The programme will be suitable for all ages, the main objective being to have fun. There will be lots of activities for all ages including outdoor games, treasure hunt, camp fire, work bases, quizzes, barbecue, trip to the beach and a surprise music night. Each family brings their own tent, food and cooks their own meals. Let us know if you are new to camping and need advice on a tent. There are plenty of take away outlets in the nearby village of Minster. Sorry but no dogs are allowed on the site.
Under Scout Association rules all adults attending a Family Camp will need DBS clearance (free of charge) which can take several weeks.
Unfortunately, we are unable to accept DBS’s from other sources.
