Red Rose 2014 is an international Scout and Guide camp organised by West Lancs Scouts. The next Red Rose camp happens 26 July – 2 August 2014.


The camp takes place at Westmorland Showground, positioned as the perfect gateway to everything the Lake District has to offer. The site is used to handling large events like the Westmorland County Show and we’ll be kitting it out with everything needed to turn rolling fields into a vibrant Scout and Guide village for a week!

A wide range of on and off site activities plus evening entertainment is planned for Red Rose 2014 – get on the water with Splash , Explore what the Lake District has to offer and Challenge yourself in the on-site activity zones. At night there will be something for everyone, whether you want to catch up with your sub camp neighbours, go down to the coffee bar or party the night away.

Red Rose 2014 costs £150 for participants including all activities, camping, sub camp polo shirt, necker and badge.  The group will add an additional £50 to cover food.  Transport arrangements will be decided nearer the time, we may need parents to take people there, or there may be a small additional charge for minibus or coach transport.
