Isle of Wight revolution is a camp for Explorers and Network members. It is held over the Easter weekend every year. Activities take place across the island and there is evening entertainment and a disco every night.

Southern Norwich Explorers will be attending as a district.

We will depart from Norwich at 8am on Friday 29th March and return around 5pm on Tuesday 2nd April.

We will be travelling by minibus and there are a limited number of places available.

The cost of the camp will be £200. This includes all activities, food and transport. You will probably want some spending money too as there is a snack bar on site in the evenings.

This camp is very popular so we need to book and pay for our places ASAP as it always sells out. A non-refundable deposit of £30 is due when you book with the remainder due by the end of February.

Book now to avoid disappointment!
