We’re excited to offer an amazing weekend full of exciting and challenging activities as well as the opportunity to make new friends from across Wiltshire Scouts at our next County Camp.
Come and join us at Woodhouse Park on 20th to 22nd September 2024 to get involved and learn new skills, all whilst having an amazing time with your friends. The event is open to all sections and we would love to see as many of you there as possible.
Keep your eyes peeled on our social media platforms for announcements and updates.
Young People: £60.00 each
Adults: £20.00 each
These prices include entry to the event, a camping pitch and access to all our amazing activities throughout the event.
Groups and/or Districts may need to increase the charge to participants to cover catering costs as Groups will be responsible for feeding their participants.
Activities On Offer
There will be more than 50 different activities to get involved with at the event! From adventurous activities such as climbing and archery to smaller activities like den building and escape rooms, there’s something new for everyone to try.
You can check out the range of activities on the Woodhouse Park website. We will have all of these activities and more on offer!
Anyone in Wiltshire Scouts! From Squirrels to Network and everything in between.
20th – 22nd September 2024.
Woodhouse Park Activity Centre, Fernhill, Bristol BS32 4LX.
Unfortunately, there are no pre-existing centres suitable for a camp of this size, with the activities we need, in Wiltshire. We’ve taken the decision to use Woodhouse Park Activity Centre who have an amazing range of activities available for everyone to enjoy.
Registration is to be carried out at group level, with each attending group registering all of its members once on the booking system. Through the system, the group leader can create as many bookings as they need.
Once the deposit has been paid, the booking will be confirmed. At that point, the group leader can add participants to the group.
Cost should not be a barrier to Scouting. We believe the fee we are charging is fair. If there are participants who have concerns about the cost, the Group should look to subsidise the cost.
Ideally, we would love for all members to attend for the whole event. We understand, however, that this may not be possible. Unfortunately, we are unable to offer any discounts or subsidies for part attendance of the event.
We encourage shared travel where possible to minimise the number of vehicles on-site. From minibuses, to sharing lifts with others or hiring coaches for larger groups, shared travel is just one way we aim to create a more sustainable and accessible camp.
No, groups should arrange their own provision of food. Food deliveries will be allowed. The driver will be directed to a specific location where the order can be collected.
Absolutely! Please register to attend the event using the link above. You’ll need to complete the form and choose the team you’d like to help out with. There will be a small fee for helpers to help cover your food and camping fees. Please make sure to detail any dietary requirements or preferences, as well as accessibility requirements, on your sign-up form.
Policies and Procedures
Each attending group must organise their own Nights Away Permit Holder. The site is rated as a “Campsite”.
Scouts ‘Policy, Organisation and Rules’ (our main guidance document) covers nights away requirements under 22.214.171.124:
“For large scale events there needs to be a permit holder responsible for each residential group. There is no limit to the number of groups that a permit holder can be responsible for, but they remain responsible for the standard of the event for each group. In addition, the permit holder must ensure the home Commissioner is notified (Rule 126.96.36.199) and inform them of the total number of groups they are responsible for during the event.”
Each Leader should have at a minimum, a First Response first-aid qualification. Most first-aid incidents should be dealt with locally, but we have a First Aid team in attendance for anything else.
Short answer – Yes. This should be organised through your group.
Unfortunately due to the terms of the site license no dogs (other than guide dogs) are allowed on site. This includes during drop off and pickup.
