Tell me More

Detailed joining instructions will be sent out nearer the time and will be published here, but here are the basics for the weekend.

When does the weekend start?

The IST Weekend will start on Saturday morning. You have the option to arrange to stay at Walesby Forest Activity Centre on the Friday night, though you will be responsible for making arrangements directly with the campsite.

Where will I stay?

You will need to bring you own tent and camping equipment for the weekend.

What will I eat?

All meals from Saturday lunch to Sunday lunch will be provided. Please ensure you have completed your dietary requirements on EventsAir.

What about entertainment?

There will be an evening of entertainment on Saturday, to give you the opportunity to meet up with old friends and make new ones.

I am under 18, can I attend?

At the time of the IST Weekend a number of IST will be under 18.

Normal permission to camp rules will apply to those people who are under 18.

The standards of behaviour at the weekend should reflect that young people will be present at the event, and the Association’s rules will apply.
