Once every two years the group has a family camp, to which all 1st Brookwood Scouts, Cubs and Beavers are encouraged to attend, along with their parents/guardians. The annual meeting (AGM) is held over this same weekend, and the whole event has proven to be extremely popular by all who have attended.
The most recent camp was during Summer 2019 at a large Scouts camp in Surrey. Supervised activities such as climbing, go-karting, archery and crate stacking kept everyone entertained and very busy. Two nights under canvas meant that adults and children had a thoroughly in-depth camping experience, and get-away from the everyday routines of life.
On the final day the main activity was a beautiful family orientated hike for all involved, taking in stunning views of the local landscapes. A fantastic time was had by all, and a real sense of togetherness and collective achievement was felt by everyone.
The next Family Camp will be scheduled for late September 2021 at a campsite in Surrey.
