Donate your leftover currency to the Salisbury & South Wiltshire Scouts

Camping and Scouting go together like Fish and Chips.

When asked why they joined Beavers, Cubs or Scouts, almost every boy and girl answers “I want to go camping”. For eighty years Salisbury was fortunate in having unrestricted access to Great Yews and many camps both large and small took place.

Sadly, three years ago the owners of Great Yews informed us that they needed to use it for commercial purposes not compatible with young people being present and so we stopped going there. Weekend and overnight camps ceased, teaching and practising the skills associated with living outdoors became more difficult.

A decision was taken that it was time for the District buy a Campsite and Training Ground. The 19 groups agreed to start a project called “The Campsite Quest” The aim, to raise £150,000 and buy a piece of land near Salisbury.
