Marra Camp is basically a large scale adventure camp. Ran by Northumberland Scouts, it is open to all sections of Scouting and Guiding from groups in Northumberland and across the UK. Every two years on the last May bank holiday weekend Marra Camp takes place each time with a distinct theme.
The event is still based on the old Caud Marra camps, which were winter activities camps held in February all about fun, adventure and meeting new friends.
Two years on and Marra Camp is back for 2016, bigger and better than ever before, this time going to the Wild West! We promise a weekend packed full of fun, friendship and adventure as cowboys and cowgirls descend on Causey Park Farm.
We've got some amazing activities that have never been at Marra before, along with fantastic evening entertainment and plenty of wild west fun to keep Cubs, Scouts, Explorers, Guides and Rangers busy all weekend long.
Cubs are especially welcome to join in as there will be special shindig just for them to mark the centenary of Cub Scouting. We are also delighted to welcome Beaver colony's along on the Sunday to take part in the western adventure.
The event takes place from Friday 27th to Monday 30th May 2016 and is open to all members of Scouting and GirlGuiding not only across Northumberland but from anywhere in the UK (and further afield!).
Please come along and support your group whilst having a great night. We are looking for race sponsors and jockey sponsors, please contact Allison if you are interested. A race night is great fun for all the family and you might even win some money. Tickets are available from any leader and only cost £5 per adult and £ 3 per child under 14. A pea and pie supper is included.
