MESH Explorer Camp

MESH is an Explorer Scout activity camp run by Bromley Youth Events for Explorers in Bexley and Bromley.

About M*E*S*H*

MESH, properly known as M*E*S*H (it stands for Mixing Explorer Scout Holiday), started in Chislehurst District in 2005.  The camp is devised to encourage Explorers from different Units to get to know each other and take part in plenty of fun and adventurous activities. MESH is open to all Explorers from Bromley plus units in Bexley and outside the County. The aim is for a weekend where Explorer Leaders can sit back and relax and let the Explorers roam around to the provided activities while letting the MESH organising team take care of (most of) the rest.

MESH 2024

MESH 24 is Olympic themed, and we will be channelling the Olympic motto: Citius – Altius – Fortius (Faster – Higher – Stronger) for our activities at this years MESH. We are taking over the Adamswell Campsite in Tonbridge Wells. Units will need to provide their own camping gear and most of their own food. A themed dinner on Saturday evening is included as part of the price and will be cooked by our ‘Olympics Village ’ team of chefs. All other meals will need to be supplied by the units attending. Units are encouraged to join up with other units to camp together if they wish.
