One Active Support Unit in Thurrock decided to do back to the drawing board and think of some interesting new ideas when they agreed to run the Annual District Scout Camp

Throughout the week we thought of a number of different ideas to get the young people excited and interested in the different activities. The highlight had to be on Sunday, which had an entrepreneurial theme.

Scouts and Explorers were split into small teams and once briefed, had the morning to create their business plans, design promotional material, arrange radio adverts and of course to make their products!

Straight after lunch trading began as the market square opened for business. Leaders from across Thurrock were invited down as customers so the Scouts could test out their best sales patter. The winning team was the team that had the greatest amount of money once trading finished.
