We had very much hoped to be running in a way close to normal this year and were continuing to plan the programme whilst keeping a close eye on the likely guidance in place for August.
It is now evident that significant changes would have to take place before restrictions would be lifted sufficiently to run Purbeck Venture ‘as normal’.
We are extremely disappointed to once again have to put alternative arrangements in place for the summer and we have made the very difficult decision to cancel camp.
We realise how important meeting in person is to young people and in order to try to bring some good news we are currently exploring alternative options, so that those looking forward to Purbeck Venture will still have the opportunity to join together this summer.
We are exploring two day-only alternatives .We would like to run both of these days to maximise accessibility for those travelling, but numbers will indicate which ones are viable.
ACTIVITY 1: Fun day at Frimley Lodge Park – Saturday July 24th (Frimley Lodge Park, Camberley Surrey)
ACTIVITY 2: Big Purbeck day out – Monday 2nd August (Based on site in Studland)
These will both begin with a Picnic lunch followed by a range of games and local activities and will finish with a BBQ.
