If you are wanting to come to the County Camp (Details below) either as a day visitor or the 2 day visit with camping on Saturday night then you need to fill in the form and bring the form & money this week to Horley.

Please Remember the 7pm start at Horley - if you are late we will be at the camp fire circle.

For the backwoods cooking you will need a long "green" stick to bake dampers on.
Make sure it is not a poisonous stick such as Holly, Yew or Laburnum.

No need for uniform, you will get smoky.
