  • No mobile phones, electronic games, or other gadgets are allowed.
  • The Cubs don’t need to bring plates, bowls, cutlery, etc or Tea Towels. We will provide these.
  • It is best to pack a rucksack or soft bag. Suitcases and bin bags are not appropriate. However it is a good idea to use a black bin bag as a “lining” to a rucksack to keep the clothes dry just in case the rucksack gets wet.
  • It will be cold at night. Please send you Cub with appropriate sleeping bag and blanket to ensure they are warm.
  • Pocket money the Cub Leader will tell you whether this is necessary on a particular camp.
  • And no sweets please – see Camp Q & A .


Note: No responsibility for the personal equipment/clothing and effects can be accepted by the camp organisers and The Scout Association does not provide automatic insurance cover in respect to such items.
