About Mosta Scout Campsite & Activity Centre

Campsite Rules

These Site Rules must be made known to all your Leaders, young people and other members of your group/party. The warden’s interpretation of these rules, and what is, and is not allowed to take place on the campsite is final.

Arrival

On arrival on the campsite, the leader of the party will meet the warden before anybody goes onto a camping field or enters a building. Please note that the earliest time of arrival on a Friday for a weekend booking is 5pm. At this point the camping fields or buildings will be received. In the case of buildings, the leader of the party must inspect the buildings and their contents and report any damage and deficiencies to the Duty Warden within one hour.

Fees
If the fees have not been paid in full in advance they will be collected on your last day.

Motor Vehicles
These must be parked in the car park and must not be left neither onto the camping field and nor in the building area. Motor vehicles are allowed to approach the fields for loading and unloading purposes only.

Fireworks
No letting off of Fireworks is allowed in the campsite

Non-residents
People not staying over-night must leave the campsite by 11pm.

Property and Equipment
The security of personal and group property on the campsite is the responsibility of the owner. The Mosta Scout Group does not accept any responsibility for loss of or damage to such property but recommends that it be adequately insured.

Public Address & Loudspeaker Systems
Excessive outside broadcasting of voice and/or (particularly repetitive) music by amplification and loudspeakers through a public address system is not permitted on-site.

Quiet Period
The quiet period on the campsite and in the buildings is from 11pm to 7am.

First Aid & Illness
Each campsite group must provide its own first aid kit to deal with incidents. Major incidents can be taken care off by the Mosta Polyclinic which is open 24/7 and located at the Mosta main square.

Sewage System
The campsite has its own sewage system. Disinfectants, bleaches and chemicals (including those from chemical toilets) must not be put down any of the sinks, washbasins, toilets or drains as this will stop the sewage works from doing its job.

Chemical Toilets
These can only be used on the field if the only liquid used is water without any additional chemicals. These must not be emptied down in the cesspit next to the shower block.

Showers and Toilets
According to the number of campers, the warden will provide showers and toilets under a lock and key. The showers and toilets allocated, can only be used by the guests renting the site and should be left clean before departure. During winter times the water heaters can be used and can be switched ON from a double pole switch located in the shower room a couple of hours before use. Before departures the water heaters and the pressure pump have to be switched OFF.

These are multipurpose empty rooms which can be used for indoor sleeping. They accommodate approximately 15 PAX each. Bedding needs to be provided by the guests.

Kitchen
The Kitchen is fully equipped with industrial cookers, fridges, freezers and sink. Utensils are also available. Hot water is via a small water heater located in the same room. Gas is via a butane bottle and must be provided by the guests. There will be an additional charge of 2 Euro per day if the center provides the gas. The kitchen must be cleaned before departure.

Dining Room
The dining room accommodates approximately 40 PAX and is equipped with folding tables and benches. Addition tables and benches can be set in the outdoors at no charge.

A fire practice must be held, and all users of the campsite must take part. The EMERGENCY ASSEMBLY POINT is located near the front gate. A fire blanket and an extinguisher are in the kitchen.
