Welcome to Northern Freshers Camp,

Northern Freshers Camp 2016

Hosted By Manchester SSAGO


Welcome all Freshers (and I suppose all you older folk...)!
Manchester SSAGO would like to welcome all SSAGO members across the north to our fresher’s camp. This is a great opportunity for SSAGO’s to get to know their newest members and build relationships with its neighbouring Societies. This blurb will hopefully give you an idea as to what to expect, what you need to bring and what the plan (?!) is.

On the 21st-23th October we will be staying at a Scout hut in Urmston

Address: 5th Urmston Scout Group, The Lighthouse, Eeasbrook, Urmston, MANCHESTER, M41 9JA (http://www.5thurmstonscouts.com/)

There is the possibility we will be able to stay inside, but please bring tents incase this doesn't happen.

If we do end up staying inside, please be reminded all of us will be staying in one room so if you like your privacy, feel free to pitch your tent anyway.


You and members of your SSAGO can meet us at The SteamHouse Pub at 7.30pm (pub is on Urmston Station Platform)where  we will gather and eat before heading over to the scout hut together at 9pm for the fun and campfire.

The price for Freshers Camp will be £20, however we do offer reduced rates for staying parts of the time. Included in this price is all meals on Saturday and breakfast on Sunday, accommodation and activities.

On the Saturday we will do activities on site. Last year included pioneering, wide games and a campfire in the evening. 

If you experience any issues in the booking process, please contact webmaster@ssago.org.
