When so many people enjoy a camp, you have to have some rules. Not to hinder or blame, but to know what to expect from eachother. If you treat others and their possessions like you want to be treated, nothing can go wrong. There is also some points that need special attention: We are a Scouting campsite. Please pay particular attention to our garbage- and fire-regulations.
- Camping fees are all inclusive except canou rental, tables and benches and electricity (but charging points for mobiles are included)
- On arrival, the leader in charge must go to the warden. He will then hear where to camp.
- Use of the facilities (e.g. central campfire place) should be done only after conferring with the warden.
- Toilet facilities are kept clean by the campers. The warden will make a schedule for this.
- Fires can be build in the fire-places and on (self made) fire tables. Burning wood is available. Please note the fire regulations (see below).
- Normal scouting conduct of behaviour is expected when treating site, matrerials, nature and fellow campers. If in doubt, ask the warden.
- Instructions by the warden need to be followed at all times. The warden has the authority to remove groues from the site and to refuse groups in future visits
- No cars are allowed on the site. Parking is at 100 metres.
- Bicycles should be kept in the bicycle-parking lot.
- No dogs are allowed either. It's a playground area !
- Between the hours of 23:00 and 07:00 the site is expected to be quit.
- Damage to goods must be paid for. A price list is kept on the notice board.
- Digging of trenches or otherwise is not allowed.
- The sides of the central camp fire place are (still) vulnerable to damage, and are not allowed to walk on
- On departure, all used areas should be cleaned, all borrowed materials should be returned and all rubbish should be dumped in the container before contacting the warden for a final check.
- All matters not included in these rules will be decided by the warden. His decision are to be followed and complaints can be made afterwards to the board.
In case of an emergency, a loud SOS-signal given (.../- - -/...) The group should come together in the field near the parking lot. Exit routes and meeting point is marked on the notice board
Every time we have the container emptied, it will cost us € 50,- (£40).
It is therefore very important to keep your rubbish to a minimum !
- Make sure you don't throw away cardboard (especially no cardboard boxes). Paper, cardboard, milk cartons, wood and anything else that can be burned cannot be thrown in the container. If you don't have fire anymore, leave it next to the container for the warden to burn.
- Glass is separately handled. There is a box near the warden, and this will be recycled.
- Pay attention to the plastic bottles. Take of the lid before throwing them away, because otherwise you can't compress them. It's very costly to throw away air !
- Fireplaces need to be cleaned out before you leave. Make sure all wood is burned, and no lumps are left. Ashes should be thrown in the container, but charcoal should not.
Fire and fire making on the campsite
- Fire-making on the campsite is only allowed in the dug in metal trays.
- When the fire is lit, at least one bucket of water must be nearby.
- Combustible fluids are not permitted
- Flames may not be higher than 1 metre (3 feet) above the fire tray.
- Absolutely no fire is allowed outside the trays.
- Campfires: make arrangements about time and place of your campfire with the warden, either in the small campfire-circle or in the large theatre.
- (Gathering) firewood: There are two woodpiles on the campsite: one near the small campfire circle and one near the main-entrance of the campsite. You can use this wood for fire making. (Of course you should chop it up first).
- The stacks of branches you find all over the site are not to be touched. They are like hedge-rows and important to the ecology of the campsite. Pulling out wood and branches disturbs their function.
- However, twigs and branches you find on the ground of your campsite and around it you may use as firewood.
- Only pallets approved of by the warden may be used as firewood.
- Ashes and leftover firewood: let the fires burn as long as possible, so that all the wood is burnt to ashes in the morning. It is all right if embers still glow in the metal tray. Just make sure no flames rise above the tray and that all inflammable material around it has been removed.
So, throwing some logs on the fire just before you finish and then putting it out by pouring a few buckets of water over it, IS A DEFINITE NO.
- Before leaving, unused firewood is to be returned to the woodpiles.
- Do not throw the ashes into the bushes. This is extremely harmful to plants and animals.
- Partly burnt and scorched wood is to be brought to the warden. (If you have made your fire properly, this will not be necessary)
- Shovel hot ashes into a wheelbarrow and dispose of them in the hot-ashes barrel. Cold ashes are put in a plastic bag (bin-liner) and disposed of in the garbage container.
Please follow the instructions given by the wardens.
Make sure the members of your group are familiar with these regulations and act accordingly.
