Being out is a massive part of being in Scouts, and as well as being out on the water, we are out on the land.
We play games in fields, we build dens, we camp, we hike and we light fires - safely of course! Our leadership team includes adults with the experience and skill to teach the safe use of tools from matches to axes.
For all of our sections, nights away are a key activity, building confidence, independence & friendships.
For our Beaver Scouts, this starts with sleepover weekends in different locations; whilst our Cubs have both activity weekends and a week long summer camp in the glorious Surrey countryside. For Scouts, summer camp means living in a team, cooking, activities and much more; and our Explorers expand their camps with expeditions. Our Scouts and Explorers also head away for water activity weekends, on the coast or elsewhere.
And of course there is our partnership with Karel Doorman sea scouts in the Netherlands, which means regular camps with our Dutch friends.
