Explorers and Network Skycamp Elements 2017

Elements Weekend ‘Air’


Explorers, Network, Guides Senior Section, Leaders

29th September – 1st October 2017

SkyCamp is a weekend competition aimed at Explorers, Network members and Guides Senior Section and leaders.

The weekend will begin at 7pm on Friday with the competition beginning on the Saturday morning. Tents will be left up Saturday as emergency accommodation in case the build doesn’t go according to plan. An emergency tent is compulsory and must be pitched by Saturday morning whether camping on Friday night or not.

The object is to build a base in the trees which must be between 0.5m and 2.5m off the ground, and then spend the weekend living, cooking, eating and sleeping off the ground.

There are challenges thrown in throughout the weekend… expect the unexpected!!!

Upon Registering you will be sent a booklet with tips and hints from the organisers. Participants will find this really useful as it gives considerable detail on what to expect and lots of advice.

Saturday 30th September

The competition will begin at 9:00am, where teams will be allocated an area that will become their home. Teams will have until 4:00pm to construct a base off the ground that they will be able to cook, eat and sleep in. During the day there will be a number of challenges and activities that will allow teams to earn valuable points to add to their total.

Sunday 1st October:

Teams will be preparing and eating breakfast in their SkyCamp before beginning team challenges. Camps must be broken down by 2:00pm before joining the awards and closing ceremony.


Teams are encouraged to bring their own equipment to build their SkyBase, however all the campsite pioneering equipment will be available and teams will have the opportunity to scavenge in the woods on the Practice Day.


Teams can consist of between 4 to 8 people


Competitors:                          £20 per person

Non Competing Leaders:       No Charge (£20 for catered option)
