Den Day – Save the Children (Fri 16th June)

We are again supporting Save the Children Den Day and we are asking scouts to build “DENS” (Shelters, bivvys, temporary shelters) on Friday 16th June and then sleep in them overnight. The cost of the camp is £10 and all the profit will be sent to support Save the Children as part of their DEN DAY PROMOTION. We are also asking scouts to be sponsored so we can raise even more money for the cause, please use the attached sponsor form.

THE IDEA IS FOR YOU TO GET BUILDING!

We had some excellent efforts last year, but we also had some disasters! This year REALLY let YOUR imagination take over! Teepees, cardboard cottages, camouflage caves, spaceships, whatever you want! Decorate it with flags, lights, posters, cushions, curtains or even wallpaper. Team up and build them together; two’s company but eight is a party. We will give a prize to those who build the best den.

You need to source the materials, tarpaulins, cardboard, rope etc. We can help with some of it but our stocks are limited. Access to the Scout Hut will be available for toilets, changing AND JUST IN CASE OF BAD WEATHER! Breakfast and Supper will be provided. Drop off time is 7:00pm and pick up in the morning at 10:30am.
