Northern Camp Lite

Event date: 
17 August 2016 - 10:00am - 21 August 2016 - 5:00pm
Event location: 
Dunham Massey Scout camp, Altrincham, WA14 4SP near Manchester

The site is very near the M6, M56 and M25, and is also not far from the metrolink, which

 provides links to mainline train stations.  It's a particularly lovely site, and also has pedestrian access to the neighbouring National Trust deer park, for beautiful walks and superb ice cream! We have booked exclusive use of the site.

Camping will be in district villages, and we have use of an enormous central field so we can do really fun big group activities and games. While each district will be completely autonomous when it comes to programme, food and kit, we would love it if each district could offer to put on an activity for all campers on one of the days, Manchester have offered to do Wednesday as we have the shortest journey to camp.

All adults attending camp need to be full members of Woodcraft Folk, with an up to date DBS. It's worth getting the ball rolling with this early, I know a couple of people who missed out on camp last year as their DBS was not up to date. 

If anyone is new to camping, or nervous of bringing their district away, please get in touch. We can offer advice and guidance, or can even pair you with a more experienced district. 

So what do you need to do?

Manchester members can book via their local district.

Leeds members can find out more and book online via the Leeds webpage, or email If you are interested in sharing a village with Leeds, please contact this Leeds camp email address asap. 

Members from other northern districts need to send an expression of interest, and an idea of expected numbers please. If possible, Leeds district is happy to share a village at camp with other northern groups, which are not big enough to form their own village. 

If anyone you know would like to be on the mailing list please ask them to send an email to
