Camp 2019 Countdown

Dates for Camp 2019:

21st July 2019 - 28th July 2019

Seahouses

 

The Company has been canvas camping for many years and has formed a special relationship with the village of Seahouses, Northumberland, where we have been camping since 1954.

 

The camp site is one mile from the village of Seahouses, 400 yards from the village of Beadnell and across the road from a beautiful beach.

Camping in Style

 

The 44th Camp is no ordinary Camp - with electric lighting in all tents, hot showers, a TV and video, snooker, pool, table tennis in the games marquee, and a chef to cook our meals!

 

While at camp the boys will be given three cooked meals each day (2 courses at breakfast and lunch and 3 courses at tea). A chef is employed to cook these meals.

 

Over the years we have built up Camp, acquiring all of our own equipment including canvas, electric generator and even an industrial cooker.

Camp Activities

 

Activities include inter-tent sports competitions; individual snooker, pool, table tennis, draughts, chess, tennis and golf competitions; swimming trips to Alnwick and Berwick baths are supervised by an officer and there are usually visits to places of interest such as Bamburgh Castle, Newcastle, Whitley Bay and an outdoor activity centre.

 

Boys are free to visit the villages each afternoon and evening.

 

At least 10 officers expect to be present at camp and some of their wives will be staying near the campsite.
