Following the successful completion of the sailing courses last summer we will be running the courses again in 2016.
There are a limited number of places on each weekly course, and because we wish to give our scouts first preference, we need to gauge the level of interest among scouts before we open the courses to other sea scout troops. Therefore we would ask that all interested scouts/parents fill in the online form with the relevant information as soon as possible. This course is only available to registered Scouts and Ventures.
The beginning of another exciting year, our new cub scouts have settled into their sixes and we have started our badge work in preparation for the activities ahead. Over the year we hope to use the 8ú Calafort website to keep you updated with our plans and let you read all about our activities.
Hope everyone enjoyed Easter Camp. Our next event is hostelling in Loch Dan from Friday April 19 till Sunday April 21. The cost will be announced later in the week. If scouts are interested they should let their WL know.
Meet in den at 10:15 tomorrow with all your gear. You do not have to travel in Uniform, but MUST have it with you, including Duck. You may wear hiking boots (not wellies) as part of the uniform instead of black shoes for Mass on Sunday.
We will load trailer and leave for Powerscourt at 10:30.
Directions: Through Enniskerry heading for Powerscourt Gardens. Pass by the entrance to the gardens and keep the wall on your right. Golden Gates (coloured black !!) will be on your right, just before narrow bridge. Gates should be open with Warden in attendance. If not, call me.
We will leave site on Monday at 13:00 provided site is clear and is left as, or better than, when we arrived. ———- Leave no trace —————-
MOBILE PHONES ARE BANNED FROM CAMP AND WILL BE CONFISCATED FOR DURATION OF CAMP
Just a reminder that Easter camp will be from Friday 29 March until Monday 1 April. We will be collecting €5 deposits on Friday, March 15. Total cost for camp will be confirmed on Friday. A gear list will be posted within the next week.
