The 50/50 team offers 14-17 year olds the opportunity to come to Poacher as a participant for half of the time and a helper on the staff team for the other half which will enable you to build up your work experience and see what Poacher is like from the other side.
There will be a range of activities throughout the day and in the evening especially for 14-17 year olds.
There are two different options within the 50/50 option:
- You can attend Poacher alone and become a member of the Poacher 50/50 Unit. This is a great opportunity to make new friends and have a fantastic experience BUT it may not be suitable for all. You would need to have experience of having camped before and be happy taking care of yourself, the subcamp team will be your group leaders for the week. The Poacher 50/50 Unit will be fully catered for by the Unit Team and the cost will be £130 for your food and activities.
- If you wish to apply for a 50/50 Place but camp with your unit and be catered for by your unit, the cost will be £80 for the activities. You will need to pay your food cost direct to your unit.
