Have you ever thought about becoming an activity instructor?

It’s a great way to support Scouting – especially for those who can’t commit to the weekly meetings!

Perhaps you weren’t sure what’s required?

Click here to see the pre-requisites for the following activities and complete the form to register your interest by 30th September so we can plan the finance and time required in 2018.

  • Minibus Driving
  • Crate Stacking, Zip Wire, Abseiling @ Phasels Wood
  • Target Sports (archery / rifle shooting)
  • Hill-walking – for Terrain 2 (Terrain 1 will require less input)
  • Climbing – artificial walls (e.g. Phasels Wood / Lees Wood)
  • Climbing – real rock

If water activities are more your thing, look out… details will be out soon for dinghy sailing, power boating, kayaking and canoeing!

Why become an activity instructor?

Well for a start, it’s great fun!

But also…

Adventurous activities are a staple of the Scout programme – we know they’re one of the main reasons young people join Scouting. In the coming years, the district will continue to increase the financial support for adults to train to hold adventurous activity permits

Encouraging young people to try activities, develop an interest and go on to attain their activity permits also helps retain young people through the transition in adulthood and bring them back as leaders.

Go on… give it a go!
