Cambridge Duck Rally!

22nd - 24th June
The Jarman Centre

Welcome to Duck Rally, held at the Jarman Centre (near Newmarket) from Friday 22nd to Sunday 24th June 2018! It all started as a dreamy proposal but now there’s no ducking out, Summer Rally is coming to Cambridge! We will be hosting our own duck-based take on Summer Rally and we hope you will enjoy! 

We have a whole range of options, including some indoor accommodation for those of you who would rather nest inside and everyone will get the opportunity to explore the city of Cambridge. People with full day activities will head over from the hike or water activity centre to Cambridge for dinner and the ceilidh in a local scout hut. Those with afternoon activities are also flapping off to Cambridge in the morning for abDUCKtion, our morning game. We will have our own bar during the ceilidh, serving reasonably priced drinks and SSAGO favourites; you can also bring your own drinks but once you leave site in the morning you will not be able to return to the site until after the ceilidh.

We would love to see as many of you as possible and we will be rewarding SSAGO and individual clubs with exciting stretch goals. They keep getting better and better as more people book!
