Taster Days
On Sunday 28th and Monday 29th July we welcome thousands of Cubs, Brownies, Beavers and Rainbows who will be descending on Poacher for a fun packed day. It will probably be the first taste of an International Camp, with activities, crafts and projects taking place in all the Sub camps as well as your own Taster Day arena, there’s a lot to squeeze into one day.

As the next generation of “future Poacher campers” it will be an experience you will remember for a long time.
What are Taster Days and what can I expect ?

Bring your Units to visit Lincolnshire’s International camp, Poacher 2013.  Held every 4 or 5 years, Poacher is the pinnacle event of Lincolnshire’s Scouts and Guides and is attended by thousands of Scouts and Guides from Lincolnshire, the UK and from many different countries. It will take place on the Lincolnshire Showground.

The unmistakable combination of fun and friends will flourish and many of the Scouts and Guides taking part in the main camp will have had their first experience of Poacher at a previous Taster Days. Our Taster Days do just that; give the younger members of both movements the chance to have a taste of the buzz and excitement of the camp whilst taking part in their own specially organised activities.  With their own activities field within the Lincolnshire Showground they can experience a myriad of activities and crafts throughout the day, planning is well underway to make sure this will be the best Taster Days ever.

They can also experience and watch some of the great entertainment and activities enjoyed by the Scouts and Guides on camp.  They will have the chance to visit all the sub-camps and will be welcomed by the sub-camp staff and can take part in a challenge at each HQ.

The theme for the day is Heroes and we invite our young guests to become Heroes-just for one day.

The day offers great fun for all our visitors who can choose to attend with their units on either Sunday or Monday.  The event will cost £7.50 for Rainbows, Beavers, Brownies and Cubs and £2 for leader and helper this includes all activities on the day and the event badge.
