Beacon Hill Campsite

Date: 5th Feb 2020 Author: Scout Websites
The campsite is one of the greatest assets in the district and 2020 is going to see some fabulous enhancements!

In April (fingers crossed) we are going to open the CAVES! We have a working party up and running – come along and help on the 8/9th February if you would like to. More information from martinjdold@gmail.com.

We also have a growing Youth Campsite Crew – they help with all sorts of jobs around the campsite and also learn new skills. It’s perfect for Platinum, Diamond, Queen Scout and DOE awards. Next meeting on 1st February – all welcome!

The caves and the Youth Crew are just 2 aspects of the Campsite Development Plan. Results from a recent survey amongst adults and youths showed more activities would be desirable, whilst maintaining the site’s natural beauty.

We are also hoping to open a new toilet and shower block in the summer! All of these things will improve our campsite for everyone.

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
