About Charnwood 2019

Charnwood 2019 will once again, be an amazing camp full of fun and friendship, so come and join us here in Leicestershire, England.

Scouts and Guides aged 10 to 14 can camp with their unit in sub camps and we will have a whole range of exciting activities planned for them to enjoy.

For the 14 to 17 year old Explorers, Rangers and Young Leaders we have a separate sub camp with more suitable activities for their age. So #BePartOf it and come and join us.

If you are aged over 18 then come and join our staff teams. We do work hard but we have lots of fun too.

About the International Team

We have our own international team who are here to welcome and support visitors travelling to Leicestershire from outside the UK mainland. We will:

  • Work with you from the point of registration to support your group and make your trip a memorable one
  • We understand that long haul travelling makes bringing equipment difficult. So we can find you an onsite host group if necessary, so that you won’t need to bring bulky cooking equipment and food.
  • If you wish you can hire your group tents and other bulky piece of camping equipment to allow you to travel lightly.
  • We are a helpful and friendly team and will meet you at designated local pick up points. We can pick you up at designated local airports, train and bus stations and guide you to the site too.
  • We can help you arrange travel plans from point of entry into the UK.
  • If you are planning an extended stay either before or after the Camp. We can discuss ideas and options with you to help support you with your plans.
  • We will write a formal letter of invitation to support your visa application where required.
  • At camp member of our friendly team will be available daily to have a chat. We want to make sure your group are enjoying the Camp and everything Charnwood 2019  has to offer.
