Camp and Outings

Camps and Outings
Apart from the Term Subscriptions the other cost of Scouting is camps and outings.  At Gumdale, camps and activities will generally cost around $10 to $40 depending on the type of camp/outing and what the catering arrangements are.  

 All sections run a number of camps/sleepovers and activities so keep an eye on the Group website for dates and look out for notices about camps and activities sent out via email by our Leaders. 

Special Diets at Camp/Outings 

 If your child has a special diet due to a medical condition it may be beneficial for food for a camp or outing be provided by the family. This will help in keeping costs down for the camp/outing and the child concerned will have food that they are used to.  

Please ensure that any special dietary conditions are noted on the Group ‘Member Medical Statement/CareMonkey’ that all families must complete on joining Gumdale Scout Group and updated annually. 

Forms
To attend an activity or event, a form, usually a C4 Notification of Camp or Outing or CareMonkey Notification will be sent out by the Leaders of the Section well in advance of the camp or outing.  It is important that these be returned to the leaders either via email (the Leaders hand out a hard copy at the end of a section meeting or they will be sent via email) or handed to the Leaders at the hall. 

The form will also have details such as when, where, what time departing from the hall and when they are due to come back to the hall at the end of the camp or outing. 

Cost of the camp or outing will also be noted and funds can be direct deposited to the Group bank account so please make sure you note the ‘narrative details’ that will be on the note.  This helps the Group Treasurer identify who has paid for the camp or outing.

Please note that payment must be received before the camp/outing commences.
  If payment is not received prior to or by the dure date your child may not be able to attend the camp or outing unless prior arrangement has been made.

 

Other forms will come to you via email or with your son or daughter so please make sure you return them promptly if necessary.
