Scouts and Guides camp-out this weekend to gain special “I’ve sub-zeroed at Kibblestone” badge

Hardy Scouts and Guides will be braving the Winter weather to take part in Kibblestone International Scout Camp’s Sub-Zero weekend.

Seven  Scout groups from Staffordshire and Guides from Derby are staying under canvas at the rural camp near Stone, Staffordshire.

Steve Fern, Kibblestone Estate Manager said: “The Sub-Zero weekend is proving very popular and the campers will get a special Kibblestone Scout badge as proof of their bravery.”

The youngsters, aged 11 to 14, will camp for free as a special offer for Sub-Zero weekend and we open our shop and put on a range of activities. It is good fun and they go home with tales of having to prise open tent doors thick with frost.”

The 98-acre Kibblestone Camp hosts scout groups from the UK and beyond and has a range of facilities and instructors offering activities such as caving, raft building, rifle shooting, high ropes and archery.
