Do you excel at certain Scouting skills?
Would you like to pass those skills on?
Would you like to learn from others?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then Skills Matter is the event for you.

WHAT IS IT?

Following on from last year’s highly-successful Skills Matter event for leaders I am pleased to invite you to Skills Matter 2019 to be held at Raywell over the weekend of May 17-19.

This is not just an event to brush up on your Scouting skills and learn new ones, but also a social occasion as well to catch up with friends and colleagues, make new friends and have an enjoyable time.

It doesn’t matter whether you have 40 years’ experience in Scouting or have just attended your Appointments Panel.

WE ALL HAVE SKILLS TO PASS ON, AND WE ALL HAVE SKILLS TO LEARN.

This event is open to leaders from ALL our sections: Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorers & Network.

Book now for our County event over the weekend of May 17-19. Bring your tents or hammocks and have a great time. Or if you wish just camp out under the stars.

You’re also welcome to camp on the Friday evening if you wish.

We’re flexible, so you’re most welcome even if you can only attend on the Saturday

The skills we intend to cover on the Saturday/Sunday include the following (and more hopefully):

  • Keeping everyone Safe
  • Crafts & programme
  • Dutch-oven cooking
  • Firelighting
  • Axe & knife safety
  • Pioneering
  • Solutions to adult challenging behaviour
  • GDPR
  • Aerial runways
  • Maps & Compass
  • Fells Marathon (also adaptable skills and equipment for a successful hiking event)
  • Youth-Shaped
  • International

COSTS AND REFRESHMENTS

Skills Matter is being funded by Humberside Scouts and will include Saturday Lunch, a barbecue on the Saturday evening.and refreshments throughout the weekend.
