Here is the letter with details of the ‘X’ Camp event taking place at Polyapes on the 21st June and 22nd June 2014. We will be attending this event which is being organised by our District for the enjoyment of all our young people. It will celebrate 10 years of the Royal Kingston District.
The ‘X’ Camp Committee is well on the way to finalising all the details and are working very hard to ensure that this is a memorable and spectacular event. We very much hope that your youngster(s) will come and join us and enjoy all the activities and events that are being put on.
The activities will start on Saturday morning and continue through to early afternoon on the Sunday. These will include:

We camped at Walton Firs in Cobham over the Easter weekend, from 9am on Good Friday to 4pm on Easter Monday. It was freezing (literally).
The Archery, shooting, climbing, abseiling and caving were very exciting and the assault course at Walton Firs was a tough one. There were plenty of badges to be earned and fun to be had. We roasted pork on a spit roast over an open fire.
Standard Camp Personal Kit List
This list can be cut down as appropriate for weekend or overnight camps. Mark your equipment with your initials etc. All kit to be packed in one bag. Uniform (except caps) is to be worn on the journeys both ways.
If weather conditions are poor, warm clothing will be essential. Many small layers are better than few thicker ones. You will need a set of good waterproofs and decent boots. Hat and gloves are useful too. Remember all your boating clothes may be wet after the first activity, so a second set is necessary for other activities. For summer camp remember plenty of T-shirts and shorts, sun cream and a cap or sun hat.
Penknives are only allowed at camp with permission and must not be worn as part of uniform. Other knives are generally not permitted.
Radios, electronic games and mobile phones are not permitted at camp as they frequently are lost or broken. All telephone contact with home should be through the leaders and/or the campsite pay-phone, not mobiles.
There is a substantial amount of lost property without a nametag after every camp. Write or sew a name onto everything to ensure its safe return.
