Group Weekend @ Curraghchase [Scouts/Ventures]

We will be running our first camp since 2019 on the 24th – 26th of September. This will take place at the new County Campsite in Curraghchase (directions below). The cost of the camp will be €30 (which will include food and campsite fees) which must be paid next week (23rd September). The Beavers and Cubs will be joining us on Saturday for an investiture/award ceremony.

We will be meeting at the campsite at 7:00 pm on Friday and collection is 12 noon Sunday (returning to scout hall afterwards to help put away gear)

Tents for Scouts

Due to Covid-19, everyone will be in individual tents (Siblings may share). If your son/daughter has a tent, we would ask that they bring it along. This should be a small, 1-2 person tent, not a big family. If they don’t have a tent, let us know and we can supply one.

Venture Scouts will not require a tent – more details to follow

Investiture & Award Ceremony.

We will be holding the investiture for all sections on Saturday afternoon. We will be inviting parents of those getting invested to come out and join us for this. This will be between 3.30 pm and 5 pm on Saturday. This will be a great opportunity for you to see Scouting in action.

If your son/daughter does not have a neckerchief & woggle, please let us know ASAP and we will order them. This will cost €8.50
