District Activity Day

27 April @ 09:00 21:00

Activities day at Belchamps on Sat 27 Apr for Beavers, Cubs and Scouts from across Southend West Scout District. A huge variety of adventurous activities and games available, culminating with a big camp fire. There are a huge number of activities on offer, with the attached map highlighting a few of them and where they’ll be on site, all finishing off with a big camp fire where we’ll renew our Scouting Promises for the year ahead.

We’ve received the final details from the organising team to share with you, including an update on times.

When: Saturday 27 April. 0900 – 2100 (note revised times). If you need to arrive late or leave early, please talk to your child’s leader in advance.

There will be a lot of other scouts from all over Southend arriving on Saturday morning (including over 100 from 3rdCB alone) so timings have been staggered to ease the traffic. If you can share lifts please do. The drop off and pick up area is the overflow car park by the front gate, and exiting at the bottom of the site via Hawkwell Chase.

  • Please arrive as close to 0900 as possible.
  • We will finish after the camp fire for a pick up at 2100.

Where: Belchamps Scout Activity Centre. (SS5 4JD. Maps Link), 3rdCB will be based in the PHC building just by the front entrance (look for our scarf on the attached map), and bags can be left in there.

Cost: Free!

Wear: 3rdCB polo / tshirt and scarf. Activity trousers (or shorts if it’s warm) and trainers. Bring a jumper (3rdCB hoodie ideal if you have one) and waterproof jacket.


  • Packed lunch and water bottle (both named). Any medicines needed during the day (asthma pump, epipen etc; please inform leaders if it’s anything we’re not already aware of).
  • Towel and change of clothes (there’s a water slide if they’re feeling brave!)
  • Small amount of spending money for the shop (optional)


  • Attendees will need a named packed lunch with them, including some snacks for during the day and a full water bottle. There is no other lunch available!
  • No Nuts – Please don’t send any products containing nuts as we have several young people with severe allergies.
  • We’ll provide a light dinner before the camp fire in the evening. Please make sure any dietary requirements are correct in the Parent Portal.

Permission to shoot form: Activities on offer include air rifle and crossbow shooting, great activities but these require specific parental permission (under Sect 21 of the Firearms Act 1968). If your child would like to take part in these activities please can you print, fill in and sign the permission form (available in the Parent Portal) for them to bring with them (it will be exchanged for a wristband on the day). Without this form they will not be allowed to take part in shooting activities (the leaders can’t sign on your behalf).

If you have any questions, please speak to your child’s leaders in the first instance.
