2019 – County Beaver Scout Camp

After the huge success of County Beaver Camp in 2017 we will be doing it all over again the weekend of 6-7 July 2019. As that month marks the 50th anniversary of the moon landings there will be a space theme!

We are looking at ways to increase capacity but this is sure to be a popular event so if you are interested start planning! More details will be out soon once confirmed.
