Scout Annual Camp 2018

Dear Parents,

The scouts will be back soon, Wed 7th Feb, but in the mean time I would ask you to put your mind to this year’s annual camp.

This year we are going to JamboRí-2018, this is an international scout camp being held in Stradbally, Co Laois.

JamboRí-2018-1 <- is a link to an information sheet.

Scout Jamborees are fantastic experiences for the scouts where they will meet scouts from all over the world.

As this is a camp organised by Scouting Ireland the cost and dates are out of our control as are the instalment due dates for the camp fees.

Key Information;

·        When?
Wednesday 25th July to Thursday 2nd August

·        Where?
Stradbally Hall, Co. Laois. (Electric Picnic site)

·        Cost?

€320 for the camp, this includes camping fees,  food and all activities.
€50 for transport to and from the camp and other outlays associated with camps.

·        Camp Fees Due Date?
€120 Nov 2017 (extended by scouting Ireland)
€100 Jan 2018
€100 April 2018
€50 June 2018

While the Aghada Group can help in meeting these deadlines with group funds we need commitment from the scouts for attendance.

Note: All fees paid to Scouting Ireland are non-refundable.

We need confirmation by 14th February if your scout is attending (or not) this will allow us confirm our place at the camp. You can text or call Kevin. Following that we would ask for the fees to be paid as soon as possible.

As always please talk to us if the deadlines causes problems and we will do everything we can to facilitate you.

Yours in Scouting,
