A Year of Adventure and Nights Away
One of our aims is to enable our Adults to provide more Adventurous Activity opportunities to our members around the County and at our own Tawd Vale Adventure Centre.
Since September, we have appointed more County Activity Assessors and we have created a simple process for Activity Permit Applications. Using the new system, to date 16 permits have been completed and another 10 are in process.
Take a look at the Adventure page on the County website for more information, we plan to add to this to help ease path to gaining a permit and thereby increase the opportunities for Adventure for our members.
In addition to our Adventure Permits, we have continued to see adult volunteers helping provide nights away and residential experiences to Young People whether by camping, hostelling, sleepovers or bivouacs, form an integral part of scouting, and are something that every young person should have the opportunity to take part in.
This has always been one of the highlights of our Scouting programme and for some, the main attraction of Scouting. We in Merseyside have some very active Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers, not to mention Network and Adults who manage to get away on a regular basis.
We hope to provide more opportunities for those who currently don’t get away on residential experiences as often as they would like, such as through our very popular Outdoor Skills weekend, we will continue to provide adults with the skills they need for 2019’s nights away experiences.
