County Backpack is a two day incident hike around the local countryside, Scouts will need to visit as many bases as possible each day, before returning back to Belchamps. Each base will have a small activity to complete before moving on to the next base.

Teams will need to attend a compulsory base at the start of the day and will then work out their own route, all bases will be manned and will have an activity and a route card to complete before moving onto the next base.

Each team must consist of 4-6 Scouts (all of Scout age) and must be able to walk with a lightweight rucksack, teams will not need to carry tents or cooking stoves, but will need lunch and equipment for a day hike.
