Theme Park Camp

COVID19 UPDATE 9/6/2020:

Regretfully, but probably unsurprisingly by now, Theme Park Camp 2020 is cancelled.
Thorpe Park is shut, campsite is shut, we aren’t allowed to meet face to face, and social distancing just how we roll. Apart from that what’s stopping us? Sorry my lovelies.

Keep an eye on the socials as we might well do a few virtual things over the weekend.

Next event Friday 10th – Sunday 12th September 2021

Check out our visual, check out our audio…


Can you and your Unit afford to miss out on the Explorer Scout and Scout Network event of the year? Take a look around the site to find out more about Theme Park Camp in September when over 400 of us will descend on a campsite in Surrey, and go to Thorpe Park to have the time of our lives.

New-ish is The Walking Dead ride, and if that’s not frightening enough, there’s Derren Brown’s Ghost Train, this season subtitled “Rise of the Demon” oooh scary! Scream if you wanna go faster!

We can’t wait to go on SWARM this year! Plus SAW, a roller coaster based on a horror flick, is immense! We love Stealth: fancy going 0-80mph in two point three seconds ? Then it goes up 60 metres! That’s three times higher than Colossus, over twice as high as Tidal Wave! Yikes!  Talking of which, Colossus is the only 10 loop roller coaster in the UK , that reaches speeds of 45mph, while Tidal Wave is like being strapped down, pushed off a massive waterfall, then someone pours a bath of water on you. Remember, waterproofs are for wimps!

There’s also Nemesis:Inferno, which is very cool, G-forces of 4.5, and stupid speeds right down close to the ground. Then there’s Rush, a giant swing basically, then all sorts of mad spinning things which some of Summit say are amazing, while some feel sick on the teacup ride!

It’s not just about Thorpe Park though, we’ll entertain you each evening with discos and fires and games and inflatables and loads of stuff. Plus you’ll be hanging out with Explorers and Network from all over the country, and that’s always a laugh.
