Earhart’s Hangar’s subcamp leader is Tony, who along with the rest of the team, is looking forward to welcoming you onto site.  
Many of the team worked together 4 years ago on the Great Wall of China subcamp and had such a good time, that we had to come back to do it all again!  

We have a mixture of Scout and Guide leaders on the team, with our youngest member who is 1 year 3 months and 26 days old!  We have been busy on site setting up the subcamp, marking out your pitches and getting everything ready for you.

Amelia Earhart was the first female pilot to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean in 1932 at the age of 34.  She mysteriously disappeared in 1937 whilst attempting to fly solo around the world, and neither her nor her plane were ever found!  Earhart’s Hangar’s theme is transport through the ages and how this has helped to shape the world we live in today.

Outside our hub you will find a variety of different vehicles, why not pose for a picture or two! See if you can complete the 3 parts of Earhart’s Challenge – Land, Sea and Air by completing a quiz, challenge or craft activity.  In the craft tent we have lots of transport related crafts for you to have a go at. We also have some sports equipment and games if you want to make some new friends. If you can get a team together see if you can get the fastest time on our cannon run.
