Come and join the magical world of Harry Potter at Raywell. Come and meet the staff and professors from Hogwarts and mix with other young wizards and witches from Humberside.
Your weekend will start with the beginning of term picnic supper feast in the open air and you can attend the Yule ball on the Saturday night.
The days will be filled with working your way through Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley.
A chance to take part in every lesson at Hogwarts, magical and adventurous and watch the time just fly by.
BOOKING FORMS, HEALTH FORMS AND DOWNLOADS
Booking forms and deposits need to be in by 28th February 2018.
Young Leaders from across the County come together to undertake some of their progressive training. Usually a fun and challenging weekend with activities, tasks and discussions taking place with an opportunity to socialise in the evening.
This weekend will focus on Modules F-I, with Module A being run on Saturday morning too.
As requested at the last training weekend, we will be offering activities to those not completing Module A on the Saturday morning.
There will also be an opportunity to speak to our County D of E Team this weekend for those Explorers and Young Leaders that need help with their awards or would like to find out more about the scheme.
Young Leader training is now offered free of charge to all Young Leaders. However, you still need to book (using the booking form below) and the County reserve the right to make a charge of £10 per person for any places booked where people do not turn up or cancel prior to the weekend.
WHAT TO BRING
We will be camping for this weekend so Young Leaders should bring their own camping equipment too.
Full uniform is no longer required for these events. You should wear casual (IScout, group / unit t-shirts) and neckers.
Please ensure you bring outdoor clothing, shoes and a coat / waterproofs as some of the weekend will be outdoors.
No need to book – just turn up, have a coffee and ask any questions that you may have about the Duke of Edinburgh Scheme:
- How to support young people
- Where to find more information
- How to get involved in delivering and assessing the scheme
Whatever you need, our D of E experts will be here to answer your questions and give you the guidance you need.
