SECURITY TEAM REQUIRED Leicestershire County Camp

Security Team required Leicestershire County Camp, Fri 17th- Sun 19th April 2015.

I have recently been asked with organising and implementing security for the event which should be a great opportunity for young scouters, guides and even the old and bold of the county to get together for a weekend.


To that end we will need to form a team in order to assist in the safety and security of the campers.

I am hoping to have a team of approximately 12 – 16 persons with 6 covering the nights on the Fri & Sat inclusive; there will be onsite catering at £20pp for the weekend.

(Please be aware that there is a minimum age requirement of 18, with membership & DBS for either Scout or Guide Associations)


Tasks will include:

  • Assisting in the welcome and management of visitors;
  • Maintaining safety and security onsite;
  • Assisting the 1st aid and emergency services, if required;
  • Controlling effective and safe parking practices,


As the camp is fast approaching, I will need to know fairly soon, so that I can arrange a meet and greet and organise the team so swift responses would be greatly appreciated, therefore please respond by 29th March 15.


Please use this link to view the Camp flyer.


Emails for any queries or to confirm interest should be forwarded to

Thanks for taking the time to read this, and please feel free to get in touch should you have any queries.
