A little bit about the Bases

At the end of the day, this weekend is a fun competition! Bases will be styled around the adventure skill programme, with a marking scheme and markers at each base. Don't worry though, none of the bases will require considerable prior knowledge. A lot of the points will be going towards team work and creative thinking.

So everyone is on the same page for the competition, we have included the specific scout skills that you'll need for the weekend under each base. Besides those you'll need to be able to work well as a team and solve problems together!
