Campdowne – welcome!

Campdowne – the carnival begins

On the 1-10 August 2013, Downe Scout Activity Centre is welcoming Scouts, Explorers, Guides, Senior Section Guides and Rangers from 10 -18 years old from around the world to be part of the only headquarters run International Scout and Guide camp.

Campdowne has been run for twenty years on a four-yearly basis, and we’re excited that so many new faces and past attendees are coming together to be part of this historic event. This year, Campdowne will embody the theme of ‘Carnival’ with influences from around the world – from London to Rio, New Orleans to Polynesia – the true carnival spirit of bringing everyone together for one amazing gathering truly encompassing the ten days of Campdowne leading to an unforgettable and magical experience for everyone.

Of course, there’ll be fantastic activities, entertainment, trips, culminating in an unforgettable closing ceremony.
