Over 6000 Scouts will be present over the weekend. We provide tents and catering. During the day time and in the evening Scouts are free to wander round the site as they see fit, and do any of the many hundreds of different activities. These include abseiling and climbing, car driving, parascending, through to circus skills, crafts and cooking, sumo suits and wrestling etc, and live bands in the evening. All this takes place on a completely secure “banded” site – security is really tight. The activities and the site itself are completely safe for youngsters to wander round unsupervised.

Scoutabout takes a lot of organising, and as such, it takes place only every third year. Unless your son or daughter is very lucky in their age range, this will be the ONLY opportunity to attend a Scoutabout whilst they are in the Troops. We do recommend that they attend. The cost will be £48/head for the weekend. You will need to deliver and collect your Scouts yourself.

Catering for the camp is provided in clusters at District level. That is, our Scouts and those of the other six Groups in East Surrey District will be catered for by a District team. In order to hold the cost to a minimum, each Group must provide two adult volunteers to come to camp and assist in the kitchen with the District catering operation. We at 1st Oxted are no exception to this, and will welcome two people to assist with the catering.

Further detailed information will be available on this page in due course. Registration for this camp will be by email to gsl@1stoxtedscouts.com
