During the successful young leader camp which recently happened the young leaders expressed interest in getting back together and holding another camp and international camp was suggested and we met with positive feedback. In light of this the district team have decided to offer the young leaders the opportunity to participate in an international camp we plan to run an eight day trip to Kandersteg in Switzerland next year. The Kandersteg site is an International recognised Scout centre known around the world for its stunning views and adventures programme ( Their website is ) In order to progress with the planning of this we need to determine how many young leaders would like to attend and participate on this journey . We understand that events like this do not come cheap and we are planning to support all young leaders as much as we can, enabling then to all participle. With event of this type we are unable to provide an exact cost at this time as the more young people that attend the lower the cost can be however we are expecting this to in the region of £300. We understand that this is a large amount and we will be offering a payment plan to help spread the cost over the coming year as well as support fundraising to help reduce the costs. We do not want anyone to miss out on this opportunity so if you would like your child to go and you feel this may be a struggle please contact Steve on Phone/email (our District Commissioner) or Di Smith (Wolsey DESC) on Phone/email to see how we can assist. The camp will be 23rd August 2019 – 31st August 2019 , but we will be running some get to know each other events prior to the main event so that young people can help shape their camp, these events will be covered in the total cost. This event will be a truly unique event which will remain with the young people for many years to come. If you would like your child to attend or have any queries please respond to this email or call Steve on 07789867161 to allow planning to progress we are setting a deadline of the 10th October for people to register interest.

There's still time to book! Scouts will be working with the Suffolk Fire & Rescue, Paramedics from the Ambulance service, the Coast Guard and the Police to develop your first response emergency aid skills. Play out what-if scenarios, test your first aid skills and learn how to save lives!!! This camp will raise money for the East Anglian Air Ambulance, camp fees will go towards EAAA and in return we get access to professionals who will teach our scouts valuable lifesaving skills. Your Scouts will be able to pick up Emergency Aid Badges as well as community work for either the World Challenge Award badge or Fundraising badge, if you decide to support the EAAA in your own fundraising event afterwards.

I would like to invite you to join us for a Weekend Camp at Hallowtree from the 10th- 12th August 2018. The aim of the camp is to allow Young Leaders from around the District to get together and enjoy a weekend of activities and socialising. This will be your camp, if you would like to help organise it please let me know and we will create a mini exec for the camp, so you are able to decide what you do, in true spirit of Youth Shaped Scouting. The roles on the exec will be Chair, Treasurer, Quartermaster, Catering and Activities, if you are interested in any of these roles please indicate on your form. I am aware many of you may have exams, which are your priority, and so I do not expect us to meet until these are over.
