South East & South West inter-regional camp

Event date:

The camp will take place in August for a week at the Scout site at Lyon's Copse. Districts wishing to attend from the SE and SW have already expressed an interest and currently we are expecting between 500 and 650 campers. The camp is going to be supported by a website and on-line booking. This exciting camp will be organised in the same fashion as the SE and SW camps, emphasising village activity and encouraging organic co-operation without an overbearing central programme.

My first blog post

This is the very first blog posting. The site is coming along, I'm working on various views in the members' section. More good stuff to come...

Family tree

If we want to know and understand other people better, we need to start with knowing ourselves. One part of who we are is our family and our ancestors.

Colour portraits

Aim: To recognise that we all have different coloured skin, and this is one thing that makes us special.
You will need: Paper, paints, paint pots and paintbrushes.
Duration: 45 minutes

Paint a self-portrait. Mix the correct paint colours to match your skin tone and hair colour as closely as you can. Everyone will mix their own special colour because we all have slightly different coloured skin and hair.

Water orchestra

Aim : To have fun making music with water
You will need : water, different sized containers
Duration : 30 minutes

We use water in all sorts of ways, and often do not notice the water around us. Water makes many different sounds depending what you do with it.

Fill different containers with varying amounts of water, and blow over the tops to make sounds. Find other ways to make music with water:

Circle time

Aim: To introduce the concepts of water usage with younger children.
