CPCW (County Patrol Camping Weekend) is a County based camping competition for Young People in Scouting in Oxfordshire who are currently in a Scout Section. To be a Young Person participant this year, you will need to be between the ages of 10.5 years and 14 years old.
You will be camping from Friday evening to Sunday afternoon without your Scout Leader being 'scored' the whole weekend!
CPCW (County Patrol Camping Weekend) was started over 25 years ago by our previous UK Commissioner, Tim Kidd who had the idea to start a competition to test the skills, knowledge and capability of Young People in Scout Sections across the Oxfordshire County. It is now an event that other Counties in the UK have adopted for themselves and is run as an Annual Event.
Have you got what it takes? Can you enter a Patrol to be the very best and beat the rest? Has you Patrol got the skills, knowledge and teamwork to score high and take home the trophy for 'Best Patrol' 2022?
With the focus in 2022 on 'CORE SCOUTING SKILLS', this event will teach and improve skills in fire lighting, axe chopping, campfire cooking, camp hygiene & safety and more!
As with all Scouting, the experience of camping and skills of your Patrol is fully inclusive. We don't mind if your Patrol has never camped before or if your Patrol have been camping together since Cubs, CPCW is open to everyone! Patrols will be in a monitored Zone with Zone Leaders to keep an eye on all of the Patrols and to help and advise where needed and if needed.
If you cannot find an answer to your question, please contact us via the bottom of this page.
That's great and we really do need your help to make our event a success.
We have an Explorer area set aside on the camp site and we have an Adult Leader on the Team dedicated just to making the Explorer experience as rewarding as possible. As an Explorer Scout at our event, we will be asking you to help with activities, marshalling and demonstrating as well as leading by example to the Scouts that are attending the event. If you have previous CPCW experience, then you will know how having someone to look up to or help, a friendly face showing you how to do something can be a real help.
So if you would like to be part of our event team as an Explorer Scout, press the registration button above or visit https://www.woggle-events.co.uk, register for the event as 'I'm an EXPLORER SCOUT' and make sure you identify yourself when prompted or asked that you are an EXPLORER SCOUT and we will be in touch!
And thanks for giving your time up to help other people. We promise you will have some fun too along the way!
The event will open its gates from 6pm on Friday 7th October 2022 for Scouts to arrive. Patrols should arrive and registered at Event Control from 6pm onwards and should register as a COMPLETE Patrol and ONLY when EVERYONE in the Patrol is present. We ask Leaders to put the emphasis on the Scouts to make travel arrangements between them so as to ensure that they arrive at the same time; share the distribution of kit needed for the event and of course, share the cost of the their food for the event (a list of food items will be provided via the website to which the Scouts must devise their menu for the cooking competition event and bring this food with them to the camp).
Collection by Parents /,Carers on Sunday 9th October 2022 will be finalised shortly, but we expect this to be between 12:30pm and 4:00pm at the latest.
We ask Parents / Carers and Leadrrs to share respnsibility for getting the Scouts to the event as much as possible so as to maintain our sustainability theme for the camp and also to help us manage the smallest amount of vehicle too and from the site. We would like to minimalise the impact on the site and the surrounding areas as much as possible.
We are trying our best to give everyone a fair opportunity to attend our event and we will consider all circumstances in writing should you be looking to register a further Patrol.
Please email us at email@example.com with details of why you missed the event registration, your Group Name, how many Patrols you would like to enter and how many YP this includes. We won't make any promises, but we will always try our best to be as inclusive to all as we can.
That's an easy one, simply drop us an email with your question to
firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our utmost to get back to you with an answer within 48 hours.
You sure can. Our booking system is designed to be flexible and user friendly for our Leaders right up to the event and beyond.
Not sure on final numbers or names, register now with basic information and change things later. Just be sure on numbers as best you can! We want to plan the event on the right number of YP as best we can, so drop-outs would be a problem and you need to keep to the minimum of 4 YP per Patrol and a maximum of 7 YP.
We have heard this a lot from Leaders this year, based on the fact that our Young People have not had the past three years experience in camping etc that they would have had coming through Cubs for example.
Don't worry, this is NOT a reason NOT to send your Scouts. We have set up the Camp this year to accommodate this and provide all the Young People there with the support and opportunity to learn the skills they need to come away from this Camp knowing more and being more skilled than when they left! So let your Scouts show you what they can achieve and let them find their boundaries in this controlled and safe environment. They will surprise us all.
CPCW 2022 will cost £40.00 per young person in a Patrol and this includes a BBQ but excludes all other food needed for the event.
Absolutely not. As with all Scouting, this camp is fully inclusive and open to all abilities and experiences. All we ask is that you are of Scout age on the 5th September 2022. When you register a Patrol as a Section Leader, you will be asked to give your opinion on the skill and camping knowledge of the Patrol, just to give our event staff and Zone Leaders a little bit of information before all the Scouts arrive at the camp.
This event is specifically for and targeted at Young People of Scout Section age. Therefore we ask that all Young People attending in a Patrol are to be of Scout Section Age, (over 10.5 years old and under 14 years old when the event starts).
its a minimum of 4 and a maximum of 7 Young People in a Patrol. This can be a mix of boys and girls, or just boys or just girls. This is up to you as long as you stick to the minimum and maximum numbers.
You sure can, our registration website is designed to allow you full access to make all sorts of changes to your Patrols right up to our Admin closing on the 09/09/22. We are trying to make things as flexible as possible and make it easier for Section Leaders to keep all their Patrol info in one place, track parent involvement on forms and permissions etc. Check out the Event Schedule on this page for more info on the timelines etc.
If you are a Scout Section Leader and you have never been to CPCW before or sent your Scouts to this event and would like to get a feel of the camp for future experience; then why not come along and volunteer as part of our STAFF TEAM. Registration for STAFF is via the same registration button above, but just select the 'STAFF' option. Simple as that and we will be in touch.
Otherwise, the event is a Leader-less zone apart for drop off and collection of equipment, but that's a worse case scenario for you.
Yes, to qualify a Patrol for the event, each Group has to agree to supply an adult DBS Checked Leader to help with the event for the WHOLE of the weekend please. It helps us keep costs down and the vent running smoothly.
We will be issuing a kit list for the event soon, but generally speaking, they will need to provide their own tents, cooking equipment, tables and benches, dining shelter and personal equipment to get them through a weekend of camping. Simple as that really. We provide the location, the fun and the fact that we know your Scouts will want to be coming back next year for sure!
Easy. Hit the Registration Button at the top of this page and go through to the Event Registration Page and then hit the STAFF button.
We are hearing lots of Leaders saying that they are worried about entering their Young People for this Event this year as they have little or NO experience to enter a competition. Although we remain a competition and there is a competition element to the Event, 2022 is about LEARNING NEW and BUILDING on existing skills that are at the CORE of Scouting in our County. Everyone is in the same boat remember for 2022 due to the restrictions in Scouting we have had over the past three years. As an Event Team we fully appreciate the concerns of all Leaders sending their Young People and have purposely modelled the activities and competition element to allow for this.
So rather than NOT send your Scout Patrol to this Event, as you think they aren't suitable or experienced enough; trust in our experienced and knowledgeable Zone Leaders, our hand-picked activity Leader Team with 'ooodddles' of skills they want to teach Young People and let your Scouts come away from this event with a greater skill base than when they arrived, having had so much fun with other Scouts from around the County and you might just be surprised at how these Young People can show us all what they are made of.
We will be issuing Leader Programme Guides for the weeks directly after returning from Summer Holidays to help you as Leaders programme your weeks and practice with your Patrols as we lead up to the Event. We will do all the hard work for you.
We are ready for NO-Experience through to Seasoned Pro's, it's the taking part that matters and we are here to assist your Young People all the way in this Event!
We love a good party here at CPCW. First night is Party night and it is a great chance to meet all your old friends and make some new friends too. Top tunes, top lighting effects and a the chance to PARTY until late on the first night with a BBQ in the mix too.
See others light fires and wondered how theirs always gets theirs started and burning better than yours. Come prepared as we will show you the real basics of fire-lighting and making sure your fire has all the best chances of keeping you warm and fed when on camp.
This year the Cooking Competition will be the main focus for the camp, drawing upon what we feel is a core scouting skill for our Young People in the County. If you can't cook on an altar camp fire before this event, we will make sure you know everything you need to be a pro by the end.
Its time to see who is 'Best in County for Air Rifle Shooting'. Using paper targets, in your Patrols, shoot for fun and see how much your Patrol can score. The best Patrols and the Best Individuals will then go 'head to head' to see who can win the title of County Champions 2022.
Fancy whittling a woggle from wood in whatever design you like. We will show you the basic skills of how to whittle a basic woggle and we will leave the rest to your imagination. Be the 'Best in Camp 2022' based around our theme of 'Sustainability'.
We think Patrol Tents are like marmite, you either love them or you hate them! Either which way, we will be testing each Patrols capability to pitch and pack away a Patrol tent in the quickest possible time to the highest possible standard. Its not as easy as you might think!
It's confirmed, we will be hosting a County Archery Competition this year at CPCW 2022.
Patrols entering this year will have a chance to have ago at Archery on site and then there will be a Patrol and Individual County Competition. Thanks Horley Scout Centre for your help with this!
We all have cameras on our phones nowadays. We will be setting a strict criteria for the photography competition for our Patrols to ensure they get the best shot at this!
There are four climbing stations and you need to pick your four best climbers in your team to scale the mobile climbing wall in the quickest time. You will all start at the same time and that is when the clock will start and the clock will stop when the last climber hits the claxon button at the top. This is about picking the right people for the right climb and working as a team to get to the top the quickest!
It's a classic. This isn't all about strength you know. Technique and Teamwork play a massive role in being successful at Tug of War. Has you Patrol got what it takes to take this challenge on?
Patrols will be expected to use their imagination and their knot skills to make a pioneered object or piece of equipment in this competition that focuses on core scouting skills. Team work, imagination and so luck will be needed for this competition.
This traditional Oxfordshire game takes skill and good eye / hand coordination. Patrols will battle it out to see who has got what it takes to be top Dolly!
