Woodcraft Summer Family Camp 2016 !!!!!!! – Save the date

DSC_4231_loHi all,

Give your child some amazing memories…



Friday 8th July to Sunday 10th July 2016

We have had some fantastic family camps at the Woodcraft site in Lurgashall (about 10 miles away). Here are some previous memories…



All families are very welcome to attend our family camp at Lurgashall. We’ll be setting up camp from 6pm on Friday evening and will set off for home after lunch on Sunday. Families are welcome to join us for just one night if that suits your family arrangements.

The opportunities for children to have a great time are fantastic. The site is made up of four fields and a wood – all of which are available for our use. There is an adventure playground and lots of other things to do! During the DSC_4296_loweekend we’ll organise some wide games and there’ll be equipment for rounders, cricket, football etc. This time I want to try and give the children some leadership roles for example I’d like a group of children to plan and lead a walk in the country. Others ought to plan and create parts of our meals…

The cost of the weekend is £10 / family / night. So if you’re staying for two nights it’s £20 for your whole family.

You’ll need to bring your own camping equipment – tent, sleeping bags etc. Woodcraft do own some tents so ask if you’d like to borrow one as that’s easy to arrange.

Families do need to come properly dressed for a weekend outdoors so please bring warm clothes and suitable footwear – a pair of wellies would be great!

Camp food will be provided – a BBQ on Friday night. There’ll be a range of cereals, bread, jam, peanut butter etc for breakfast. Lunch will be a feast prepared by the children. And on Saturday night we’ll be taking it easy with a take away (not included in cost). You’ll also need to bring a mug, plate, bowl and eating utensils.


INTERESTED? It would be good to get some initial numbers now, which I will firm up nearer the time. Please let me know by reply at jonathan@lisswoodcraftfolk.org.uk and let us know which nights you’ll be coming. Last time around 15 families attended and we’re hoping for more this time.
