The Great Escape 2020 is taking place between 3rd and 5th April.
The Great Escape is a challenging competition for Scouts requiring teamwork, leadership, and initiative.
Patrols must visit 15 different bases – a challenge awaits them at each. Each challenge is on the theme of ‘escape’ and runs along the lines of a ‘now get out of that / crystal maze’ type theme. It is therefore important that teams are prepared for what awaits them. Leaders are welcome over the weekend, but must not accompany or coach their patrols around each of the bases. All those taking part in the Great Escape MUST be camped at Tawd Vale during the weekend, unless they have a Special Need which precludes them from doing so. Every patrol should carry their own First Aid kit - but we would ask that all accidents are reported to the event organisers. Merseyside Emergency Team will be on hand to offer support and advice. Please make sure that each patrol is ready for any weather eventuality.
By now all Districts should have copies of the flyer and entry form for this year’s Great Escape, please check with your Assistant District Commissioner for Scouts or District Commissioner for hard copies.
As Ever this is a popular event and we would recommend early booking to avoid disappointment.
