2018 Leaders Away Day


The 7th Leadership Team enjoyed a brilliant day of bush craft training at Wildlife Survival School.

We had two objectives for the day: firstly to improve our skills so that we can pass them on to the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts; and secondly, to have an opportunity for leaders, that can sometimes rarely meet one another, to get to know each other better so that we can continue to improve the cooperation between all sections in the group.

We undertook training sessions in shelter building, natural navigation, fire lighting and knife/axe/saw. Our team has widely different experience levels in these skills, from old hands who have been doing it for years, to first timers that have never started a fire with a flint and steel. Everyone learnt something new and came away with new ideas about how to pass these skills on to our members.

We had 24 leaders on the day. This is a little under half of the total leadership team. It was great to see so many volunteers giving up their valuable time to improve the Scouting experience of all of our members.
