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!
