All the leaders would like to welcome you to your 2002 Summer Camp, we hope you have an enjoyable camp and gain a lot from it. To achieve this it is very important that you keep to the programmed activities and times, this will mean that each Patrol working together with ALL it's members doing their jobs quickly and efficiently (this means properly!).  Please don't question everything that your P.L. asks you to do.



Simon has produced this booklet,

To keep all Scouts and Adults attending the camp fully informed




Please note that whenever you are off site visiting anywhere you will be required to wear your Scout Uniform or Scout PG Yellow Tee Shirt & Scarf & plain shorts, so keep them clean and tidy [They are NOT to be worn whilst in camp (except if told to)].  Your Scout Uniform & yellow PG tee Shirt should be kept on a coat hanger in your Patrol Tent.







Anyone who injures or cuts himself in any way should immediately report to the Camp First Aider (BoB Weingarth) or if he is not available to any Leader for examination and treatment.  Please DO NOT try to treat yourself.




Good behaviour is the key to a successful and enjoyable camp, you really can have a good time without upsetting or hurting others, so please can we see the best from everyone.  If you have any problems with BULLYING or any other major problem in camp by another person - please make sure that you have a quiet word with Simon (or another leader) It will be sorted out discreetly.




NO Scout is to leave the site (includes part of the woods) without the permission of the Camp Leader (Simon). Scouts are only allowed in the stream, if they are supervised by an Adult. The Food Tents, Leaders Tents and Patrol areas other than your own, are Out of Bounds to ALL Scouts.




The lighting of fires by Scouts, anywhere other than on your altar fire Is forbidden. Any Scout caught playing around with fire (including matches, burning toilet paper etc. or playing with sticks in the fire.) will be sent home from camp.  We are only allowed to have Altar Fires if we place them on something, so that the ground is not damaged.

THE LORDS PRAY                                                                                                                             Amen.

Our Father in Heaven

Hallowed be Your name

Your kingdom come

Your will be done

On earth as it is in Heaven

Forgive us our sins

As we forgive those who sin against us

Lead us not into temptation

But deliver us from evil

For the Kingdom, the power, and the glory are Yours

Now and forever.             Amen.

                                 O Father, we thank Thee for the rest of the

                                 past night, and for all the joys of morning time.

                                 Be present in our camp throughout this day.

                                 Keep from us all evil things; make courage

                                 and loyalty, happiness and good comradeship

                                 to flourish amongst us, and help each one

                                 of us to think of the other's good:

                                 through Jesus Christ our Lord.
