Beaver and Cub Camp 2022

July 8 - July 10

County Camps are back! This time a joint camp for Beavers and Cubs.

Our aim for this camp is to allow young people to complete the criteria they have not been able to achieve due to COVID restrictions from the Adventure and Outdoor Challenge Awards. We are keen to support leaders to deliver a programme which allows young people to aim high and achieve their Top Awards for Beavers and Cubs.

This came is the first time many of the young people will have camped and many leaders haven’t arranged and delivered residential activities for three or more years. This is a great opportunity to work with others in your District to get back to camping with your section. We are encouraging young people to camp, therefore we will not be offering a day visitor option for this event.

Key Dates

  • Final Numbers: SUNDAY 15TH MAY 2022
  • Payment Deadline: SUNDAY 29TH MAY 2022
