Beaver County Camp 2016

Claregalway Beaver Scouts will be going on camp this June with Beaver groups from all over county Galway at the County Camp 2016.

The camp will take place in Portlick Scout Campsite near Athlone on the weekend of June 10-12.

This promises to be a great weekend with activities such as kayaking, archery, obstacle courses and more planned.

We will provide full details soon but for now we need to get numbers of Beavers that plan to go. The camp will be from Friday evening until Sunday morning.

The cost of the weekend will be approx €35 per Beaver which includes a subsidy from the group so it is great value. This includes camp, food for Sat & Sun morning (packed lunch for Fri) and all activities. We hope to not require a bus and to transport everyone and everything by car.

In order to reserve a place, we need to collect a deposit of €15 per Beaver by Tue May 3. Please text back to 086 0545329 with Beaver name and yes/no for camp.
