Young Leader Training

County Training Weekends

Young Leader Training Weekends

Three times a year, we organise training weekends for Young Leaders to undertake some of their progressive training. A great opportunity to meet other Young Leaders from other groups and make new friends.

The Modules are run during the day, with a meal during Saturday evening and followed by a wide game – weather permitting. The weekends are now designed so you only need to complete three weekends if you wish to complete all your modules this way.  The weekend is fully catered for and you only need to turn up with your sleeping bag, tent, etc.

What to bring

Full uniform is no longer required for these events. You should wear casual clothing and neckers.

Please ensure you bring outdoor clothing, shoes and a coat/waterproofs as some of the weekends will be outdoors.

When are the weekends ?

Usually February, March and October. See the Events page for latest details. Information is sent out to Explorer Scout Leaders and Explorer Scout Young Leader Leaders ahead of the weekends.


We are now using an online system through our website. It is a safe, secure and GDPR compliant system that saves Leaders a lot of time and it also saves a lot of paper.

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
