Winter 'Skyfall spy training' Camp 2015 - We've been expecting you Mr Scout!

Building upon the huge success of Winter Camps in 2013 and 2014 we welcome all Scouts to attend Skyfall spy training at our secret spy Winter Camp 2015!

We have again been successful in securing the excellent Tinley Centre at Skreens Park so will be comfortable and warm indoors with plenty of space plus extensive grounds for outdoor fun. It is a favourite of the older scouts and will be an excellent introduction for the newer scouts into 5th Billericay Camping. The Theme this year is Spycraft so we have some awesome TOP SECRET activities planned. Standby for mission briefings……….

The spy camp HQ will be at Skreens Park Chelmsford (same place as the last 2 year) and we hope we have a little less snow this time. We have planned a packed weekend of action and adventure for your young Scouts and we will be staying in the fabulous luxury of the Tinley Centre a centrally heated fully equipped purpose built activity centre at one of the countries best Scout Camp Sites. Details for the camp are as follows:

  • Start: Friday 16th of January 2014 at 20:00 (no earlier than 19:45 please)
  • Finish: Sunday the 18th January 2014 at 13:00
  • Location: Screens Park Activity Centre, Screens Park Road, Roxwell, Essex CM14NN.
  • Map reference: T08456436025 or T07840883402
  • A kit list is at the bottom of this page and will print on a separate sheet

The Cost has been reduced from last year to £40.00 after working very hard with the staff at Screens park to keep cost down, making this camp even better value than before.

Activities are TOP SECRET, but will be challenging and a lot of fun during both the day and the night!!! Plus plenty of fun and games. But that's not all, included in the price is the fantastic 4 star cooking of our very own Golden Fingered Chef team of Mitchell and Mitchell. A treat for sore tummies and sore eyes ;-)

Could you please fill out the form below indicating whether your Scout is or isn't interested and return it to us (It is very important that I know either way) by the 9th January. with a cheque for £40 made payable to 'Genesis Scout Troop' (or, to use our [still on trial] alternative payment methods, see the recent bank direct payment policy). Thank you for your speedy responses.
