We are travelling to Robin Hood’s Bay by coach and staying at The Old School House Youth Hostel. Beavers need to have eaten tea before drop off on Friday, we will provide a light supper once we arrive. All other meals are provided throughout the weekend.
Please see the attached kit list for what your child needs to bring with them for the weekend – please note no sleeping bags are required as the youth hostel provide all bedding. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE try and pack your child’s things in one bag which can be properly fastened so items don’t fall out! Please ensure you put names in/on EVERYTHING they bring and we will endeavour to return anything that is lost! As per the kit list, your child needs to bring a day sack, which they can have on the coach if they wish rather than being packed.
If you have any further questions about the camp please use the contact details for me below. I am the Leader contact for the event so if you need to get in touch on the weekend please ring me, regardless of which colony your child is in. Please note signal at Robin Hood’s Bay is poor in places so if you can’t get straight through, please text or email and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
We will create a mailing list for the Beavers attending this event so we can confirm via email that we have got there safely and also give you a more precise time for arriving home on Sunday. Please check your emails for this information. If we need alternative contact information for you for this weekend please make sure this is confirmed to us ASAP.

Following the success of last year’s day trip, the Beavers will be going to Robin Hood’s Bay for the weekend on Friday 20th – Sunday 22nd April for a fully catered residential, staying in The Old School House Youth Hostel.
The trip will cost £50 and will include coach travel, two days full board in the Youth Hostel and a variety of activities; including some free time on the beach, kite flying, rock pooling and a treasure hunt.
Although definite times will be confirmed closer to the time, the rough plan will be to meet around 5.30pm on the Friday at the scout hut to travel to Robin Hood’s Bay and returning approximately 6.30pm on the Sunday.
Places for this trip are limited, so to book your child’s place I ask that you email me directly on [email protected] as I will be co-coordinating bookings for the event. Please note, you will not be able to book on at your child’s section meeting like normal.
I will confirm your booking via email and make arrangements for you to pay the deposit to your child’s section. We request a deposit of £20 be paid (cheques payable to PENISTONE BEAVERS). If the full balance could please be paid by Friday 16th March.
If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact me.
