					                Information for Scout & Guide Group Leaders

Derbyshire Scouts & Guides are holding their eighth Peak Camp at Chatsworth
from Saturday 24th July to Saturday 31st July 2010.

What is it?
An opportunity for members of Scouting & Guiding in Derbyshire, together with
their invited friends from Scouting & Guiding in other parts of the UK and
overseas to experience an international camp.


The camp theme is “One World – Our World”


Who can attend?
The camp activities are organised for members between the
ages of 10 to under 16 at the 31st August 2010. The activity programme will be
exciting, varied and full of fun; from the arts and crafts to adventurous activities
and will include environmental and conversation projects. For more information
go to the Activities pages on the Peak 2010 website (www.peak2010.org).

The number of leaders accompanying groups will be in accordance with
Associations’ Guidelines. However, as the maximum number of campers (staff
and participants) is 6,000, groups from Derbyshire and the UK with a ratio in
excess of 1 leader to 5 Scouts/Guides will need to explain this at the time of
booking and will require the permission of the camp management team.
Ahead of bookings opening, now is the time to consider how to avoid or
overcome the ratio problem and the following suggestions are made:
       • a small group joins with another group in the District/Division/County
       • lessen the number of adult leaders by persuading some leaders to
           attend as day staff

The ratio of 1:5 will also apply to overseas groups unless their national
regulations state otherwise.


      How Much?

      The camp fee is:

      UK Campers £155.00          International Campers £205
      UK Leaders £30.0            International Leaders £85
