Activities

Outdoor activities feature prominently, with the highlight being camping. Throughout the year, Scouts learn various skills, such as map reading, camp cooking and first aid in preparation for camp. Rock climbing, potholing, gliding, photography and international experiences are just some of the things they get up to.

The programme is wide and planned in accordance with The Scout Association Guidelines. Details of the programme can be found on this site.
