For Ex Scouts, Would Be Scouts, or Just Anyone Who Likes a Challenge! (ADULTS ONLY!)

Forget the thousands of pounds that companies pay for ‘team building’ days, this promises to be a very upbeat event led by an experienced local Scout Leader, who will ensure that everyone has fun and learns new skills.

With help from the staff at Tolmers we’ve built a day for you around outdoor and water pursuits, and in typical Scouting style you will be competing in teams! This will be a really full on, fun, challenging, active day that you will always remember!


10.00am Briefing:  The last opportunity to use electricity for the day… over coffee you will be briefed on the day and split into two teams (or patrols as we call them in Scouts).

As with any great Scout Troop everything is a competition and the patrols will be competing for a ‘badge of honour’, which will be awarded in the closing ceremony.

Pioneering: We all love building things, so you will be shown how to do square and tripod lashing before each patrol builds a raft, using just large drums, rope and poles. Extra points will be given for the best lashing, design and stability. Once the rafts are built you will move on to your next contest.

Lunch Challenge: This part of the day will be explained fully at the briefing to ensure participants don’t try and smuggle in anything that may assist them. Clearly, your host for the day has been a Scout Leader for far too many years and has encountered all sorts of cheating going on!

Rafting: Time to find out how well you built those rafts! Both teams will launch their magnificent, hopefully sturdy (and hopefully) floating vessels onto the lake, to have some fun on the water. There may be races, a little water football or other such ridiculous activities, all led by a fully qualified water activities instructor.

4.00pm Debrief, Closing Ceremony and Presentations: Time to find out which patrol was successful in their quest!

Coffee, tea, cold drinks and lunch will be provided.
