Service Projects

The Service Group is responsible for assisting with maintenance and improvement of the campsite by undertaking a wide variety of projects. For example, projects could include things like painting the inside of the Kangaroo Flat Classroom, weeding around the Shakespeare Centre, or replacing broken bollards around the camping areas to name a few.

The Camp Cottermouth Service Group will undertake projects as agreed between the Group and the Camp Cottermouth Committee. Members of the Service Group may also propose particular projects for consideration. In addition small maintenance tasks can be agreed between the Camp Manager(s) and members of the Service Group.

Leaders (including Rover Crew Leaders) can organise a service activity for their youth members through the Service Group.
