Cubs and Scouts from the Group have the opportunity of working on the Scoreboards during this Years MGP Races. Leaders will be taking names of those who wish to be involved over the next few weeks, so anyone who wants to take part, make sure your Leader knows.
The Group will be running a Bottle Stall at the Onchan Village Fair on the 11. July 2015 and we are looking for donations of Bottles and Jars to fill our table. Anything that is unopened and within date will be accepted, whether it is a jar of jam, a bottle of shampoo or even that jar of picked walnuts that has been sat at the back of the cupboard since Christmas. All donations will be gratefully accepted. If we get at least one jar or bottle from each member of the Group, we will really fill our table and make some much needed funds for the Group.
Donations of Bottles and Jars can be bought along to any Section Meeting up to the 10. July 2015.
We are organising a Weekend Camp for all members of the Phoenix and Viper Scout Troops and the Onchan District Explorer Scouts. The camp will run from 19:30 on Friday 10. July to 15:00 on Sunday 12. July 2015 and will be based at Mullin-Ny-Carty Scout Camp Site which is located at the bottom of the Ballamodha Straight and opposite the top entrance to Silverdale Glen.
Everyone will be sleeping in tents and Scouts are welcome to bring their own tents if they wish. We will provide tents to those who don’t have one or hasn’t arranged to share with someone who has.
Activities we have planned so far include: Abseiling, Backwoods Cooking (Including gutting and preparation of fish), River Walk (bring a wetsuit if you have one), Swimming, Wide Games, Axe & Saw Skills, with more to be planned. Everyone if they wish can bring their mountain bikes if they have one.
There are no restrictions on numbers for this camp and we would like to see as many Scouts and Explorer Scouts attend as possible. The cost of the Camp is £30.00, which will include site fees, all meals and activities.
The Permission Form and Camp Fee needs to be returned by no later than Friday 2. July 2015 and can either be brought in to a Scout Meeting night or posted to my address below.
We will be holding a Group Camp over the weekend of the 25. – 27. September 2015, based at the Crossags Camp Site on the outskirts of Ramsey. The Camp is open to all our Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and members of Onchan District Explorer Scouts.
We are planning an action packed weekend of activities to keep everyone busy and having a great time.

We are giving plenty of notice about the camp, so please get your Booking Form and Payment in before the closing date of the 22. August 2015.
