Scout About Challenge
Saturday 21st March 2020
District Activity Centre - The Canyon
A relatively new event for the District Scout calendar alternating with the Around Town Challenge, this is a fun Six hours of non-competitive, Scout-craft activities, including; archery, a wood-work project to build a useful item for Patrol camping, survival skills and geocaching (treasure hunt using a GPS receiver). Patrols/teams of between 4 and 7 Scouts can enter and take part in all the above activities and each Patrol will be able to take away the items they make for use at Scouts and on camps (ideal for Colonel Woods!)
Patrols check-in at 9:30am, ready to start activities at 10am. Each activity base will last an hour. The wood-work project is spread over three one hour bases, where as the other activities last an hour each. All the activities will be based in the grounds of the Canyon, except for the Geocaching where we will venture in to the grounds of Fairlands Valley Park. A buffet style lunch will be provided for all participants before activities continue into the afternoon.
Letters will be available from your Scout Leader and to download from here by mid February 2020.
