We are excited to be holding our third annual event which shall be open specifically for Squirrel Groups based within Hampshire Scouts.

More information coming soon
Squirrels Day Photos
Below are some images from our previous Squirrels Fun Day events.
Each participant and leader shall receive a special Squirrel Fun Day badge.
There will a range of activities for your group to partake in and experience throughout the day. Each group will be guaranteed to be programmed onto at least two of our onsite activities which will include Climbing, Archery, Backwoods Cooking or Tunnelling.
There shall then be a a Fun Zone which will consist of a range of fun filled activities, some of which are not normally available at Ferny Crofts, such as a selection of Inflatables Games, a Soft Play Area, Ball Pits, an Arts and Crafts Area, Go Karts, Field Games, Circus Games, Large Field Games, Nerf Arena and much more!
Please note that Leaders shall need to assist their group on some of the activities within the Fun Zone.
Groups can start to arrive to site from 9:00am and we ask that everyone is onsite by 9:45am, ready for 10:00am when the event shall officially start.
There shall be a check in point on the main field and we ask that just the main contact/leader from each group comes to check in to make it easier. If parents are dropping off/meeting group leaders on site, we advise that you do so on the main field by the amenities block.
Food and Refreshments
We shall provide tea/coffee facilities for all attending leaders/parents.
There shall be a lunch break between 12:45-13:15pm for groups to have a rest. There shall be no catering provided during the event, so please bring along your own lunch.
There is also drinking water available on site, for participants to fill up their own bottles.
