Established circa 1980 MAD weekend is not only our proudest tradition but it’s also Essex Network’s premier event. The event is open to anyone in any Scout Network in the UK and it’s also open to anyone in Scouting & Girlguiding who’s over the age of 18.

We look forward to welcoming you and your Networks this year!


This year we have a great day time programme organised. We will have all the usual campsite activities you’d expect from such an event and site on offer such as Caving, Climbing, Archery, Kayaking and Rifle Shooting.

No Network camp would be complete without something BIG to finish the weekend off with. At MAD we offer you the opportunity to embrace mother nature warmly with our Great Raft Race*.


If you want to pay for the weekend pass now and the meal ticket later, to help spread the costs, feel free, just remember book before the catering deadline.
