The opportunity has arisen for the Scouts to get their Survival skills badge through two very different but equally fantastic sources. The badge covers all aspects of survival from first aid through to rescue skills and will involve sleeping out in a self made shelter and may also involve preparing and cooking a rabbit or fish. Not for the feint hearted!
Pro badge are a group of Scout leaders and instructors based at the Solent Scout Training Centre with which we have a very good working relationship. They are offering a survival skills badge weekend from 24-26th April (the week after Easter Camp). Scouts interested in attending this course must be over 12 years old and can book directly through the Pro badge website. PLEASE can you let the Scout Leader know your son/daughter is attending when making the booking.
