Young Leader Training Weekend

Between: 5th October 2019 - 6th October 2019 Location: Huish Woods Scout Campsite Sections: Explorer Scouts

The next Young Leader training weekend is 5 and 6 October 2019.

The format of the weekend will be similar to previous weekends. The modules covered will include

  • Module C – That’s the way to do it!
  • Module I – What did they say?
  • Module K – First Aid

The weekend will take place at Huish Woods Scout Campsite, West Hatch, Taunton, TA3 5RH. It is also fully catered (utensils not needed). The cost is £20. Applications are welcome from all those taking part in the Young Leaders Scheme. The weekend is normally very popular, so early booking is recommended. The closing date for the October camp is Friday 27 September 2019. Booking is preferred by email. If you have any problems please contact Tracey Hyman. The health/consent form is in Word format so that it can be typed into. We especially need to know about dietary requirements, etc, before the weekend. Payment can be made on the weekend. Email Tracey Hyman with heath/consent form and enquiries

Participants should arrive at 9am on the Saturday with an aim to start at 9.30am. We will finish about 3pm on the Sunday. They will need to bring tent, uniform top (for Saturday evening only), warm casual clothes, warm sleeping kit, blanket, pillow, torch, indoor and outdoor clothing, and footwear. I have deliberately not included a kit list, but if unsure please get in touch. You may want to bring indoor footwear (ie crocs, slippers, trainers) as the floor in The Govett Hall can be cold.

In the last weekend we included some activities that young leaders could use with their sections to encourage Youth Shaped Scouting. If anyone has a particular module or something else they feel they need please let me know as we could accommodate this in this or future weekends.
