PACCAR Campsite

An ACC Goes Blogging - 19 Feb 2014

Freezer Camp – Wind, Rain, Ice and Sunshine

Everybody was there Friday afternoon, tents getting pitched and the wind is already starting to buffet the place. Our site was in the woods so a little more sheltered. Outer flysheets up and pinned to the ground with extra-long pegs. That should do the trick. Out on the Main Field, the early arrivals are standing on the canvas to hold it in place while the pegs are found and poles can be fed through the loops and sleeves. This could get exciting…

What will you do in 2014 for 40,000 young people?

Long-term volunteers wanted

Paccar Scout Camp, 20 miles north-west of London, is looking for volunteers for placements from March to September 2014. 
Paccar Scout Camp is a busy campsite used by Scouts, Guides and School parties; with a wide range of activities on site for our guests.   We are looking for volunteers aged between 18 and 25 with a can-do attitude who want to spend time outdoors helping young people. This could suit those who have been a member of Scouting or GirlGuiding.  We provide food, refurbished accommodation and a generous allowance in return for your energy and enthusiasm.

One of our volunteers, from Queensland, Australia, said about her placement in 2013:

Somewhere under the rainbow

The first week of the school holidays has seen large numbers of Scouts, Guides and Brownies camping at Paccar Campsite; the photo shows an unusually quiet flag circle when all the campers were at the site Campfire.   A short shower led to this lovely rainbow - thanks to Jamie for the photo

Despite the British weather doing its best to delay progress; on schedule, over the weekend of 7th June we welcomed the first guests to the newly completed Roy’s Reservation and they had a great time!  Already bookings for the Summer are coming in thick and fast.
