Around Town Challenge

Saturday 16th March 2019

Stevenage District Scout HQ


The Around Town Challenge is a one day event of local exploration and fun challenges for the Scout section. Teams of between 4 and 7 scouts travel around Stevenage by bus and foot, completing activities as well as having a mystery or puzzle to solve on the way around!

Four Scout HQs around town offer activities as well as providing refreshments.

Challenges always include archery and rifle shooting and then a selection of challenges that vary each year. Previously these included a pictionary hike, cooking twists over a fire, making a knotting board and a camping stove challenge.

The days challenges end with the teams arriving back at the District Scout HQ for a sausage and chip dinner.

The Around Town Challenge trophy is presented to the winning team, which last time was the Poplar Scouts. Each team receive a certificate and badge for each team member.

Are you upto the challenge?
Well come along and take part in the Around Town Challenge!
