County Backpack is back, another exciting event for the Scout Section. With a variety of different levels to appeal to all members of the Scout Section, County Backpack is an event not to be missed.

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
