Kent Explorer Unit - First Camp Aug 18

Lower Grange Farm Improvement Project

LGF Project


Are you an Explorer in Kent?

Are you willing to get your hands dirty?

Are you up for trying out new activities?

Are you up for improving scouts across Kent?

If the answer is yes to these then you can come along!


This will be the first time Explorers from across Kent have had the chance to join a County Explorer Unit so all are welcome. The camp will start on Friday 24th August 18 from midday but you are welcome to arrive later, car shuttles will be available from Maidstone Train Stations if we are notified. The camp will run until 2pm on Sunday 26th August and all meals are provided from dinner on Friday to a small lunch on Sunday. The best part is the camp is free (with the proviso that the free camp is in exchange for efforts in helping improve LGF and contributions with making activities better).

The days will be made up partly of activities and partly with improvement works to Lower Grange Farm with the evenings being an opportunity to chill out and socialise with new friends.

The activities will include:

  • An archery session with a massive twist on the Friday afternoon
  • Drone racing (you are welcome to bring your own)
  • Creating a quidditch set and playing it

The Lower Grange Farm improvement works will allow you to choose between the following:

  • Fixing fences and styles (good bit of woodwork skills)
  • Jetwashing and painting containers
  • Some small drainage work
  • Landscaping
  • Car park repairs (concrete, road formation, grass-crete and physical work)
  • Various small tasks

Becoming part of the county unit and helping out with these sort of activities looks great on a CV showing future employers that you are a hardworking team player, that you are up for getting involved and give you some much needed experience to put down.  

The evenings will then allow you a chance to chill out with new and old friends with no real plan. Light a campfire if you want, toast some marshmallows, listen to some music or even play some music (if you can bring and play a guitar), play games which you are welcome to bring along. If you have been to any Kent explorer events you should be aware we have some hilarious games up our sleeves so they will probably come out. Get beaten on Rocket League by Alex or beat Alex at Fifa.
