Scout and Explorer Night Hike 2019

Saturday 23rd November 2019

Datchworth Scout HQ

The annual District Night Hike and First Aid Competition takes place during the late Autumn. Teams of between 4 and 7 Scouts, take up the challenge of navigating their way through approximately 9 miles of Hertfordshire countryside by foot.

Walking is broken up by a series of `incident bases', ranging from dealing with a first aid scenario to lighting a small fire to burn through a string line, half a metre from the ground! to mention just two.

For those who like the competitive element, there are trophies for the fastest walking time, the highest score on the incident bases and an overall Night Hike trophy. A trophy will also be awarded to the team gaining the highest score on the First Aid Base
