Adventure Loops Party 2015
(for Cub Scouts
Location: RAF Feltwell Scout Center
Dates: 10 October 2015
Registration due by 2 October 2015
The Adventure Loop Phenomenon (aka ALP) is a new single day event where each Cub Scout picks one elective Adventure Loop to work on for the day. The hope is that with some preparation from the Adventure Loop counselors, Cub Scouts can complete the elective Adventure Loop on the day. Also, by pooling counselors from across our district we can provide Adventure Loop counselors which are experts in a wide variety of areas which are not always available to each Pack.
In order to make this event happen we need adults to volunteer to counselor adventure loops. Details of the adventure loops which we would like to offer are in the Information Pack. Please contact Jessica Yates to volunteer to counsel.
The Information Pack is coming soon. Contact Jessica Yates (firstname.lastname@example.org
) to register or to get more information.

MB Schedule available online from 2 December 2015

Merit Badge University is an awesome opportunity for our Troops to pool resources so that Scouts can have the opportunity to work on merit badges which may not be available within a particular troop. How about learning Law merit badge with a lawyer for a Fortune 100 company? How about taking Theatre merit badge from a professional actor? Those are the sort of opportunities which we want to make happen for our Scouts.
Important information about this incredible extravaganza of advancement is contained in the info packet so please read it carefully.
The merit badge schedule and prep work will be available as a Google doc spreadsheet from a link on this page. The spreadsheet will be kept updated as classes are filled or additional classes are opened. The current class timetable will be available here.
The Information Pack is COMING SOON. There is also a suggested spreadsheet for registrations COMING SOON. Contact Luke Johnson (email@example.com) to get more information.
Spring Camporee 2016 – Not HIStory, OUR Story
(for Boy Scouts & Venturers)
Location: Skreens Activity Centre
Dates: 22-24 April 2016
Registration due by 8 April 2016
In the more than 100 years since the Boy Scouts of America was started, the world has changed greatly. Look further back, before William Boyce was guided through a London fog by an unknown scout and before Lord Baden-Powell of Gilwell wrote the inspirational book, “Scouting for Boys”, and you will find that the ideals of honor, duty and citizenship, that are the basis of Scouting, have appeared throughout history. These ideals were present in the Roman Legions. The Mongol society was fiercely loyal to their leaders. Even the friendly Inuit of the far north carry with them part of our universal beliefs of good citizenship.
That the Boy Scouts of America is more than 100 years old is not an event in history, but is a moment in Our story. Join us in building great civilizations founded on our Scouting ideals and be part of the future by telling our story today.
The Information Pack is AVAILABLE HERE. For this camporee there is also a Game Guide, which is AVAILABLE HERE. Contact Luke Johnson (firstname.lastname@example.org) to register or to get more information.
