2021 - 2022 Season

We plan to run courses as shown below, but this may change dependent upon the Covid-19 situation at the time.

22 - 24 October 2021

Our Adventure Challenge
Involves taking part in two adventurous activities and trying six other outdoor activities. Also includes a walk of 1 2 hours. Have you tried water rockets, archery, rope making, or a blind trail?


Learn new knots and lashings and then put them into practise by building a large pioneer structure. Then you can make good use of them by climbing all over.


To complete this course the Explorer Scout will build a scale pioneering model and take a lead role in building an outside pioneering project, such as an aerial runway or an hourglass tower.
