County Explorer Camp 2019 Update Two

We have been busy getting things planned in the background. We wanted to give an update with what is going on with the event.

County Explorer Camp – Eaton Vale 20-22 September 2019

Name the Event Competition

We have not had many people enter this. Please can you make that sure that you try and promote this as we have put a mini questionnaire to see what extra activities Explorers would like at the event and if we pick the name they can win their entry fee to event:

Bookings have been coming in thick and fast, Remember booking closes on the 30th April and we need to have the deposit paid by 5 May. Remember it is £10 per person which is non refundable. We don’t need names just numbers.

Explorer Forum

At the last Explorer Forum event we had in January we had over 30 leaders turn up and we had good feedback about the event.

We are planning to hold a second forum on 16 May 2019 at Eaton Vale. We will give you a final update on where we are with camp, discuss what we will need help with and anything you would discuss about the camp or explorers in general.

Young Leaders and Explorers with no Leaders.

We are planning to provide the Tented Village for Young Leaders and Explorers whose Leaders can’t get to the event so they can still offer this event to their explorers, But would like their explorer to go.

We will provide the food, equipment and a leaders with a night away permit. They need transport to event, Please pass this information to explorers and young leader in the group so that everyone gets a chance to go.

Please forward the following link to them so that their parents can sign them up for the event.
