Lost Children (or Leaders!)

It is your responsibility to ensure that all young people and other adults in the group stay together. Norjam is a big place, if anyone gets lost of separated leaders should report this to their group escort. Any lost children (or adults) will be taken to the Sub Camp Support Office until they are reunited with their group.

First Aid

In the first instance leaders are responsible for any minor first aid treatment; however should anyone require anything more serious they should report this to their escort who will inform the on-site medical team.

Leaders roles on the day

In order to ensure that Cubs and Brownies get as much enjoyment as possible from the day it is expected that Leaders/Supporters will join in and help with the activities that are provided, this will also ensure everyone gets to do as much as possible in the time available. Leaders are responsible for their young people at all times.

Going Home

After the closing ceremony your party will be escorted back to the car park. Everyone will be expected to leave Norjam (unless they are resident on site) and for safety reasons should not go wandering around without permission and prior arrangement with the relevant Sub Camp Leader.

Volunteers

Cub & Brownie Day can only run successfully with the help of volunteers. If you know of leaders/Explorers/Young Leaders/Rangers who would be willing to help out, please ask them to contact the Cub & Brownie Day organisers via email.

More details

More specific details for the day will be sent to you and posted on the Norjam website nearer the time.
