    i'm not too sure exactly what our county have got planned, this flyer says just about everything i know about it

    http://humbersidescouts.org.uk/web/2...mp%20Flyer.pdf

    The activities that they have listed include:
    * Firework Display
    * Street Party
    * Climbing
    * Crafts
    * International Radio Station
    * Sunrise Ceremony
    * Scalextric Championship
    * Bouncy Castles
    * Push Ball
    * Wellie Wanging
    * Campfire
    * Entertainment
    * Disco

    I'm sure that some more adventures activities will be thought up then the one on that list.

    One thing i think are really cool are those bungee trampolines!
    See http://www.skyhighleisure.net if you don't know what i mean, I've seen them at quite a few big camps.

    I think we are just having a Group camp, I know I want to be camping, as do the Cub pack, but haven't got round to organising anything yet!
    I like the idea of inviting Parent and Toddler groups and Old peoples homes. Why not also invite local Pre-schools and Reception/Nursery classes?
    As for activities that they could do, I can think of loads. Children under 5 are part of the Foundation Stage and if you want I can draw up a programme of activities that meet the Early Learning Goals and Stepping Stones that you could use to sell it to Pre-schools to get them to join in.

    Our district are having a Group District camp.

    I believe its an international theme where each group will visit another groups site which will be a country, so they visit different countrys over the weekend.

    I am confused, (very easily done!)
    I thought that Centenary camps were over the bank holiday of May 26th, and that Sunrise was completly different?
    We are going to Hampshire 007 for Sunrise (using this camp as my main summer one next year) and doing a camp of some description in May.

    Just to confuse matters further - we are organising our district centenary camp to span the sunrise ceremony as lots of groups have already organised their camps for the bank holiday weekend.
