Final Payments

Are now overdue

Please bring your final payments to the cub meeting on Wednesday at 6:45 or drop it through Jo's letterbox in a named, sealed envelope (75 Wickenden Road, Sevenoaks, TN13 3PN). 
  • Cash should be in a named envelope
  • Cheques should have the young person's name written on the back
The full amounts are

  • Scouts £65 (most parents need to pay a further £20)
  • Cubs £60  (most parents need to pay a further £17)
  • Beavers £35  (most parents need to pay a further £12)

What to bring

Please bring the standard camping kit from the list on our web site

All young people will need a spare set of clothes that they can get wet.  Scouts and Explorers will need swimming things too.

We will be parading in in 'Jungle' costume, so bring anything suitable (see Theme: RSA box above)

Scouts and cubs need to bring a black t-shirt for Sunday evening.

  • suntan lotion & a hat (the scouts needed it last weekend). The sun is as strong now as it is in August.
  • waterproofs - you do not want to spend the whole weekend in wet clothes.
  • to bring a bag to put dirty laundry in - this avoids making everything else dirty and laundry getting lost.
There are over 400 young people on site. PUT A NAME ON YOUR YOUNG PERSON'S THINGS

What NOT to bring

The standard camping kit from the list on our web site has a list of things not to bring too.  Don't bring electronics, money or other expensive items.

Scouts Activity Permission Form

Scouts need to print out and return their activity form, otherwise they will not be able to do archery or air rifle shooting.  (This is the same form that Sheila sent out before Easter).
