Somerset Explorer Young Leader Weekend 26-27 January 2019

Dear All,

The next Young Leader training weekend is 26-27 January 2019.

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

  • Module A Prepare for Take-off!
  • Module D Understanding Behaviour
  • Module F   Making Scouting Accessible
  • Module I   What did they say?
  • Module J   Communicate It !

The weekend will take place at Huish Woods. It is also fully catered.  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 applications is Friday 18 January.  It would be preferred that booking is done by email.  The health/consent form is in Word format so that it can be typed into. We especially need to know about dietary requirements and the like before the weekend.  Please email to explorers@somersetscouts.org.uk.  Payment can be made on the weekend.

Email address for booking and enquiries is Tracey Hyman explorers@somersetscouts.org.uk

Participants should arrive at 9am on the Saturday and we will be finished at 3pm on the Sunday. They will need to bring uniform (for Saturday evening only), 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.  All Young Leaders during this January camp will be accommodated in either the Gorlangton Hall (you may want to bring camp beds/roll mats) or bunks in Tone Cabin or Centenary Room.

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.

Kind Regards
