Return to 1994 Programme Page


1996 will see the third Cleveland County Venture Scouts and Ranger Guide Expedition. As in previous years it will be in the form of a Community Development Project. The area chosen for 1996 is the Masvingo Province in Zimbabwe. Masvingo is one of the towns twinned with Middlesbrough so it was an obvious choice. The project will consist of the construction of a health clinic in the rural area of Gurajena and will be undertaken by a party of 40 to 50 Venture Scouts and Ranger Guides. During the coming two years the team will be busy learning the skills of brick laying and plastering as well as raising the 50,000 required for the project. We don't promise an easy holiday but you will have the satisfaction of working with a happy team and experience the trip of a lifetime.



A forty acre sheltered site set in natural rugged moorland country on the North Yorkshire Moors, with a stream running through it. The site is ideally situated for Troop or Patrol camping and as an expedition and hiking centre.

There are fourteen camp sites of various sizes all with fireplaces and easy access to piped drinking water. Most sites are ideally situated within easy access of toilet facilities. There is ample rough ground for wide games and a large playing area for ball games and sports.

The site has two training centres for indoor accommodation sleeping 32 and 36 people. There is a Warden on duty during School Holidays and every weekend that the site is open.
