Activities Run as a Group




Guy Fawkes Fireworks Night
Held annually in the Scout grounds.  This is our major fundraising event and is attended by all sections.  The bonfire is always stupendous, the fireworks are among the best around and the BBQ, refreshments and scout tuck shop are always very popular indeed.  We're proud to have raised it to the level of being a standard 'must-do' event for the village.

Group Camp
Held every other year.

The cubs and scouts depart on a Friday night and have two nights' camping, returning late Sunday afternoon.  Thanks to good communications with the Chalfont St Peter Guide Unit we have been able to run a mixed camp in recent years.

Beavers and Brownies are invited for at least a day - at sites where there are huts/cabin accommodation they can sometimes stay overnight, which is very exciting for them (and the leaders!)

Group Camp is wall-to-wall activities.  The more the better.  Your scout/cub/beaver will sleep well on the Sunday night!

But the real event is the overnight camping. This bonds the campers and is the item that time and time again the kids say is their favourite thing in scouting.

"The best thing in Scouts is camps because you get to enjoy the activities of the camp, discover what it's like to live in the jungle, get active and you get to enjoy the life in a tent in a nice cosy sleeping bag, experiencing the life of a pioneer and you get to roast marshmallows."  Luke Marchant [Scout]
