Centenary Camp Joining Instructions

Centenary Badge

Transport to Camp
All participants will be transported to Dalmeny Estate by buses.
The Cubs and Beavers are sharing buses with other districts hence there are different venues for these buses.
Personal kit will be transported in the van supplied for the district (Luton van).
All bags will be tagged with brown/black tape for 172nd participants in order to identify the bags on the way back.

The campers will leave from Bookers Cash and Carry on Friday
25th at 6:30pm.
Please be at Bookers for 6pm to allow for loading of the van and bus.

Campers Return
Campers will leave Dalmeny on Sunday 27th at 4:30pm due for arrival at Bookers Cash and Carry at 5:30 pm.

Medical forms must be brought to the camp for all participants.
These forms will be collected centrally at registration.

Birthday Gift

As we will all be attending a birthday party it seems right to bring a present.

Scouts are working with Edinburgh Direct Aid (who run aid convoys to
the Balkans) to provide gifts for people in less fortunate areas of the

Each member attending the camp is asked to bring one or more of the
items on the list below

  • tube toothpaste, toothbrushes
  • coloured pens or pencils
  • wrapped soap, shampoo
  • brush, comb, other hair care items
  • sticking plaster, similar items
  • notebooks/writing pads/envelopes
  • gloves, hats, socks
  • small toys/puzzles/games (avoid electrical, language dependent)
  • small torch and batteries
  • small child’s picture book; comic story book (chosen sensibly!)
  • pens
  • Addressed post card (e.g. Scottish/local theme) if reply would be welcomed.
  • Cash donations are also welcomed

No Tuck Shop
There is no tuck shop at the camp therefore no one will require any money.
There will be plenty of juice/snack breaks during the day.

Kit List

All items should be clearly labelled with
the young person’€™s name. It is best to
pack a rucksack or other bag that you can carry on your back. Suitcases are
not suitable for use in tents.

Trousers or shorts (also spare)

Sleeping mat


Personal Wash kit

Hike boots or strong shoes

Personal first aid kit


Torch and spare batteries

Wool hat, scarf and gloves or Sun hat, sun
cream and sun glasses

Rucksack or appropriate carry bag

Please limit the kit to one bag/rucksack each. This is to aid in packing the van.
also bring something to sit on for Saturday evening – something small
such as a bin bag – I believe this is for the camp fire on Saturday

would like to emphasise that mobile phones, mp3 players etc. are not
covered by our insurance.
If someone does bring such item we will not be held responsible for loss or damage.

First Aid
is a doctor on site and any emergencies will be taken to St John’s
A&E. Any minor injuries will be treated by the leaders in charge of the activity taking place.
