23/05/2021 By Paul Marsh


Having been locked away for the last year, why not escape and join us for a fun packed weekend for all the family at Tedbury District Camp Site.

Mums and/or dads, along with their respective Beaver, Cub or Scout are welcome, as well as all brothers and sisters, aunties, uncles and grandparents, who are invited to come along to this event which this year will have a Pirate theme and include amongst many other proposed activities:


  • Camping skills

  • Pirate weapon making ,

  • Fancy Dress Competition (Pirate dress)

  • Saturday night camp fire

  • Construction of Pirate Ships

  • Wide games


The cost for this fabulous all inclusive weekend will be just £30 per adult and £20 per child (costs include all camp site fees), with a £5 per person deposit (or full payment if you wish)  being required upon return of the reply slip on the attached form (balance to be paid by 15th July).


Along with the reply slip, please return the attached health forms for both adults and young person's along with the DBS form (for those that do not currently hold one from the Scout Association) mentioned in the "Family Camp Parent Letter" (DBS forms need to be returned by Thursday 17th June in order to allow time for checking to take place).


To make the camp viable, we do need at least 10 families to sign up to attend, so please ensure your reply gets to your section leader by Thursday the 25th June


Camp will start at 6pm on the Friday evening and finish at 3pm on the Sunday. The site though will be open from 3pm on the Friday to allow for families to put up their tents in advance should they so wish.


For familes who wish to borrow tent’s, we have a small number of hike tents ideal for a parent and child or larger patrol tents for family groups (Please see your child's unit leader in advance if you wish to use one). 


Whilst we will be having a hot drink and cake/biscuits available for supper on the Friday evening, for those who may not have had chance to have a meal before coming to camp, we will be taking orders for the local chip shop at an additional cost payable on the night. Please see attached form to place your order.


Finally as is always the tradition at 5th Frome camps, we would ask all families to bring along a cake. These always go down well and will be used at drinks breaks during the day to keep those energy levels up!


If you have any question dont hesitate to get in contact!
