So where does your funding come in, well we want to remove as many obstacles as we can from people wishing to camp with us! We have many years experience running camps as Scout Leaders and have learned a great deal. We plan to bring camping into the 21st century not by using an electric hookup but by having solar panels, batteries, lights, phone chargers and of course all our catering equipment run off Calor gas. Each of the young people's tent will have it's own solar panel, switch operated lights and charging points whilst our main marquee will be full of its own LED lights all powered from our leisure batteries, charged during the day from the sun! With this free energy, we see no reason why camping need be an uncomfortable experience! We will create a welcoming environment which we believe will make more young people want to camp and take part in our activities. Amongst all this modern technology we will still teach and practice traditional techniques such as bushcraft.
Our group is just starting but it will be launched this summer! In order to achieve this we need to purchase all the equipment we need at £10,000.
We will be a full inclusive organisation welcoming children without any prejudice. We feel that not only will our project get a lot more people outside but also bring lots of great benefits to the wider community through our community service!
Thank you for considering us.
