County Backpack is Back for another exciting event for the Scout Section 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 Thriftwood, 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.

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.

CLASSES:         The event we will have three classes:

Novice     Experienced        Assisted Team

This year again we are offering a catered package which cost £10 per scout/leader and will cover the following:
