County camp FAQ's

Here you can find the frequently asked questions. If you have further questions please use the contact us function and we can get the information added.

All equipment can be provided. Crckery and cutlery will need to be brought by each particpant. Tents will be dependent on number in each group.

Camp licenses are not required by individual leaders and the County Camp is a great way to gain experience before registering for the Going Away with Girlguiding scheme

Parents will need to transport girls to and from the Mollivers campsite. Hopefully, parents can arrange car sharing  to cut the number of journeys required. Girls will need to be dropped off outside the building at the front of the site and their bags and bedding will need to be carried through the woods to the campsite at the rear.

Activities include but are not limited to:

  • Cooking over fired
  • Wide games
  • Bouldering
  • Go carts ( peddle)
  • Orienteering

  • Games
  • Campfire 

All payments and forms are to be completed  by May 1 2024. The forms should be returned to the Office.

The start time for the camp is 1pm the end time is to be confirmed.

A suggested kit list will be provided asap

There is no insurance for personal possessions and it is advised that ''if you don't want to lose it don't bring it'. That said, many of us use our phones as cameras, so a safe box will be used to house phones and other valuables during the camp.

The camp will take place in a large field with everyone sleeping in tents. The campsite is secure with a gate and fully enclosed by a fence. On site there is a holiday home and woodland. There is a toilet block and camp store with a fridge freezer to store food and medication at the field. There are no facilities to charge phones or other electronic devices unless they are essential e.g. medical requirement.

There will be a parent's Facebook or Whatsapp group. Posts will share the highlights of the event. In an emergency you can send a message to the camp leader using the Emergency Contact details that you will be given before the event. Young members will be able to ask for their device when they need them. If your child phones home please be aware this may make any homesick issues worse. Phones will not be  available overnight. If your child contacts you and is unhappy please let the leader know as she may not have told anyone else.

Bullying and bad behavior will not be tolerated in Girlguiding. Firstly, your child should tell an adult and they will seek to resolve and monitor the situation. Should your child be found to be bulling another or otherwise behaving badly it is highly likely she will be sent home.

All the leaders on site hold a First Response (first aid) certificate and there is a designated First Aider too. They will assess the situation and contact you if your daughter needs to go to hospital or to return home. It is essential that throughout the event the emergency contacts listed on the form are able to drive should the need arise.

We are still confirming if each unit needs their own REN's. On booking a template REN will be supplied. Units will need to set up a home contact agreement but unaccompanied guides will be part of the event team home contact agreement.

Leaders will be able to park on site but the parking area is not extensive so if leaders are able to share transport this would be helpful

Units will sleep together but mixed during the day for activities.

We have various sizes of tents and it will depend on numbers.

Girls will prepare many of their meals themselves. The food will be provided from a central store
