Following a fantastic Cally Rally 2018 we have decided to keep to similar programme activities with some exciting new additions. This year there is no need to make activity choices as we will be allocating the programme to the Scouters and Guiders based on numbers attending the camp. This is to ensure  maximum enjoyment to all over the weekend. After the camp application closing date we will finalise the activity allocations and contact all group leaders to inform them of the individual activity allocations. All you need to do is sit back and count down the days until Cally Rally 2019!!
