22nd – 24th September
Our annual Lads and Dads camp will once again be held in the wilds of the Chatsworth Estate.
The camp is open to Scouts from both Troops and will be an action packed weekend full of fun and challenges for Lads and Dads to do together plus Lads v Dads games and challenges. Although at the end of the weekend we will crown our new champion Lad and Dad, the emphasis of the weekend is on fun. There will time each evening to relax around the fire.

For safeguarding reasons you will need to complete a DBS Check – the new name for CRB. The form is available here Please get the form to your leader as soon as possible. Once processed you will be invited to confirm which ID documents you will be presenting for checking. After this, you will have to meet with us so we can see the ID and confirm it on the system.

If you have a scout DBS check from last 5 years, this is still valid so no need for the above process. A DBS from another body / employer is not acceptable.
In 2016, we launched the DofE Award at the 20th, enabling our Explorer Scouts to undertake the Silver and Gold Awards. We have 24 Explorer Scouts working towards their Awards: 9 for Gold and 15 for Silver.
After attending training sessions covering route planning, navigation, camp-craft and first aid, and undertaking a practice expedition, our Silver participants completed their Qualifying Expedition over the Spring Bank Holiday. They navigated a 50km route over 3 days and 2 nights in the White Peak, carrying all of their equipment.
WELL DONE to all three teams!
