Date: 12th Jun 2023 Author: Ian Mackintosh

Leaders Skills Day

Back by popular demand, Skills Day is being held on 30th September this year, at Forest Camp Activity Centre. Come along and have some fun enhancing your practical skills as a Leader which will aid you in delivering even better programmes for your Squirrels, Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorer Scouts.

This is an ideal training day for new leaders of every section and Module 18 will be validated on the day. It is also a way of completing some of your on-going learning (15 hours over 3 years). You will have the opportunity to attend 7 sessions from all the skills bases on offer, which include: Mini-Pioneering, Map & Compass, Fire-lighting, BBQ ovens, Branding, Tracking and Trailing, Backwoods Cooking, and many more.

120 places are available, with bookings closing once the event is full, or on 16th September, whichever is sooner. Book online today to avoid disappointment via the County Website www.cheshirescouts.org.uk/events/skills-day-2023
