Another Update

Hi all, just a couple of changes to the plans for Annual Camp.

Uniform

 We will be travelling in Uniform on Saturday Morning, so you have 2 days to make sure it is looking smart on Saturday.

Mobile Phones  

You can bring your mobile phone,  but just like we did last year, the Leaders will collect and hold the phones, every second day or so we will give them back to you so you can make calls home. 

see you all tonight

Further Update

Hi All, dont forget Troop Meeting this week, starts at 7 PM, no Uniforms.

In relation to the Gear lists, a couple of extra items to bring,  Suncream ,just in case!!!  Also we will be travelling by boat out to the Aran Islands next week, so if you suffer from travel sickness it might be a good idea if you have medication to bring it along. 

As all food and activites are covered in your Camp fee, we have decided that the maximum spending money is € 50. This is the maximum amount allowed, it is not the amount that you have to bring.  We will not be going on any major shopping trip so basically this spending money will be for the local shops . The Leaders will collect this money at the start of Camp.  

We will have a note for your parents on Thursday night which will have  contact details for Leaders and meeting times .

Dont Forget, you must return your Parental consent form to Lisa.

See you all Tthursday

Update Annual Camp

Hi all. the gear list is available further down the screen. 

There will be a Troop Meeting this Thursday 22nd July. We need all Scouts to pay the final amount for Annual and also return your Parental consent form, this is very important so make sure you return it to Lisa.

We will probably need  some help during the week in finalising the Troop gear, so keep an eye out on this website and facebook for any request for help. 

Important times to note:   Saturday, 24th July. We plan to meet at the hall at 09.00 AM.  Sunday 1st August,we would expect be back at the hall at approx 4.00PM.

Will update with more info during the week.

Gear List for Annual Camp

Yo Ravens, this is a listing of gear you will need for Annual Camp.

You will all have most of this gear already, remember this is Annual Camp and is an activity based holiday, so therfore it is unwise to bring your brand new designer clothes. There are no catwalks on the campsite!
