Welcome To... Waddecar

Now that restrictions have been eased once again there is no better time to book some time at Waddecar. There is no longer a limit on group sizes (although for now, you may still only have 6 people to a sleeping space). There is still time to book some Summer fun with your group for a week, a weekend, a day visit, or even just an evening. We're looking forward to seeing you!

Please see below for the current guidelines in ENGLAND

Readiness level: YELLOW 

This means: Section meetings can take place outdoors and indoors. Residential activities may take place.  

Group sizes and limitations: 

  • All non-residential activities (including young people, Scout Network and adult only groups): No limit on group size, although all activities must be able to safely manage the risk of transmission of COVID and, if this is not possible, they must not take place. Outdoor activities are still encouraged. In poorly ventilated locations social distancing and face coverings are expected and recommended (note any requirements by facilities and external providers must be followed). 

  • Residential activities: Nights away activities may take place, limited to a maximum of 6 people per sleeping space (tent or room). COVID measures such as good hygiene remain in place, and lateral flow testing is strongly recommended to take place immediately prior to departure and twice a week throughout the trip and on return for those age 11 and over. Further information is available in the planning COVID-safe Nights Away in 2021 guidance

Note: It’s important to remember that we’re still in the middle of the pandemic and we all have the duty to make sure we’re following the letter and spirit of the guidance. Although there is no longer a legal requirement for many things, as Scouts, with a duty of care to others and to young people, we recommend and expect the application of good hygiene and covid-safe approaches to all our meetings, events, activities and residential experiences.
