Organise an activity for your Section
The activities calendar contains all the opportunities, including those you would need to organise for your section, for example, a caving experience with our Caving leader. Other activities are by invitation, for example, air weekend experience at Henstridge airfield. And some you organise direct with an external provider, for example, gliding.
Many of the adventurous activities require specialist leaders with the appropriate training and permits. Whilst this might be delivered locally, Dorset Scouts support by offering its own adventurous activities programme for young people and adults and delivering adult training.
