DSC_9349.JPGThe weekend catered for Scouts interested in many aspects of the Chief Scout Gold award and the weekend will be geared around this. All troops will be supported in camping to Outdoor and Outdoor Plus standard and will be encouraged to “do their best” in the competition.

The competition started on the Friday evening at 6pm to give as much of the daylight as possible for setting up camp.
