INTERNATIONAL EXPERIENCE IN ESTONIA SUMMER 2016

Estonia16Nottinghamshire Scouts are planning a fantastic International Experience in Estonia in the summer of 2016 for young people aged 10½ and over.

Whether you are looking at bringing your whole Troop or Unit for a summer camp, or just few of them looking for an international adventure, want to do your Explorer Belt, or you're a leader looking to gain experience of organising and attending a trip abroad, this is for you.

We are currently pulling the outline activities and challenges together, so details will follow shortly.

There will be various options available for different Sections, including water activities, a 3-day spider course in the trees, working towards worldwide environment programme, and even an Explorer Belt option for the over 16's. We will be sharing the camp with the Eco Scouts of Estonia.

At this stage we are looking to you as Troops, Units, and individuals to tell us if you're interested so we can start to work up the details. We are hoping to fill the selected site with around 200 people.

Don't miss out, contact me at chris.flewitt@notts-scouts.org.uk if you are interested. Keep an eye out online and in the next Notts Scouts Leader's email for more information! We plan to visit Districts and will be able to come to your Troop or Unit to do presentations to young people and parents at your request.

The cost for this 10 day experience is budgeted at around £480 per person, so represents amazing value.

LET US KNOW IF YOU WANT TO GET ONBOARD! IT'S GOING TO BE AMAZING!! JULY2016!!
