Senior Scouts and Explorers @ Winter Camp 2019

Posted on 9th September 2018 by Tony Brewis

We are offering an opportunity for our Explorers and senior Scouts (over 12s on the date of the camp) to take part in a real outdoor challenge…

Wintercamp is The Scout Association’s biggest winter event yet, at both Gilwell Park in London/Essex and Hawkhirst in Northumberland… Our next event takes place between 11-13 January 2019, and Chester-le-Street District Scout troops and Explorers will be going to Hawkhirst.

Wintercamp is an activity camp running right in the middle of winter. You can certainly expect the extremes of British weather. We have seen snow, ice, torrential rain, and bright sunshine. Combine that with the best activities going and we’ve got ourselves a very exhilarating weekend.

At Wintercamp 2019 you’ll be able to try a number of activities including the usual favourites: shooting and archery, crafts, water slide, prussiking, radio orienteering, wide games, quad bikes, go karts and a disco, camp fire and cinema. There will be many others too. Our day and night programme will keep you totally entertained.

Wintercamp is a popular event – we usually sell out all spaces! As we will be attending as a District, and as it’s a popular event, we need confirmation and payment by 28th October.

How much?

Our prices for 2019 will be £70 per Scout and Explorer – this includes catering and transport to the event from our district (setting off around 5pm Friday, returning around 5pm Sunday).

For Explorers, you should use My.SCOUT to book and pay, and a number of our Scout Troops will use this too. Otherwise troops can find out more by downloading this flyer.
