Leader Skills Weekend 2020
13th March 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 15th March 2020 @ 5:00 pm£35 – £70
Want to learn a few new skills or brush up on some old ones? Join us for a fantastic weekend at Queen Charlotte’s Wood, socialising with other Adult Leaders and enjoy participating in the activities for once!
The course will run over two days. The course will be delivered by outdoor accredited Bushcraft instructors who will teach you plethora of skills, techniques and teaching methods you can use with your Beavers, Cubs, Scouts or Explorers.
Who Should Attend?
The event is open to all adult appointments in Mersey Weaver. The course will cater to everyone from the complete novice to the seasoned outdoorsman looking to hone their skills! The course is designed to be more in-depth and intimate than the Skills weekend organised by County and will allow you to explore the resources we are incredibly fortunate to have on our doorstep.
To be confirmed. We are looking at making the syllabus different enough from last year that those who attended last year can develop their skills further but still be accessible to new comers
