What is the payment schedule for WINGS 2020?
My Unit will be travelling from abroad, do i need to bring my own equipment?
As we have done for previous WINGS events, for international units we can buddy you up with UK units who can help support you with the equipment you need. This has worked well not only from an equipment point of view, but also in forging relationships ahead of the event – many units have maintained long-term relationships and gone on to host further camps together.
How do you protect my unit’s data?
We take the management of protection of data very seriously and understand the nature of the data we are storing. To better understand how we manage and keep your data secure, please read our privacy notice.

Food and catering
Is all food included in attendance at WINGS 2020?
During WINGS 2020 we will provide your unit with the ingredients for breakfast, lunch and dinner over the 7 days.
I have a food allergy; will you be able to provide food for me?
Our professional Head of Food has an in-depth understanding of catering for people with allergies. During the event we’ll have all the 14 major food allergens covered (which accounts for 90% of food allergic reactions) in the menu.
The registration system will provide you the opportunity to make us aware of food allergies within your unit (based on the participant).
How will you manage food waste?
Our food and catering team are designing menus to best manage and minimise food waste for example designing menus that have the capability to utilise surplus food. We are also working with local food banks and charities in Berkshire who will be able to use any food waste that is produced. In addition, all our disposables will be made from plant-based materials and will be fully compostable.
How will you be sourcing the ingredients?
We want to deliver an environmentally responsible camp. As a result we will be working to minimise the miles your food has to travel, providing you with fresh food with a smaller carbon footprint.

Yes, a single permission form is included as part of the registration process. We only run activities supported by the UK Scouting and Guiding organisations
