We are planning to take Kidderminster District cubs and young scouts on a residential trip to Acorn Adventure’s centre at Opal centre, France on the following dates Monday 7th – Friday 11th August 2017. We have used this company and site before and had a fantastic time. With lots of water activities having its own lake
Children must be invested into cubs or scouts before they attend this camp and need to be aged 11.5 or under at the time of the camp
Safety in France – we understand some parents might be concerned about this trip being in France – we will obviously be keeping a close eye along with Acorn for all safety concerns – this site is 25 miles in from Calais near a small town, all activities are based on the site which is privately owned by Acorn and accessed only by their bookings. We will not be stopping anywhere else within France and coaches have their own safe route on and off the ferry
