Indoor Scout - ~ February 2016 (TBC)

Indoor Scout is the partner event to Outdoor Scout and tests all aspects of scouting skills through a series of different bases and challenges.

The range of bases is broad and teams never know what challenges they might find themselves up against. In the past they have included first aid, traditional Scouting skills, creativity, performance, team work, ingenuity, problem solving and communication.

Teams compete for the Indoor Scout Trophy by completing as many of the bases as possible and scoring points for everything challenge that they undertake.

Navigation Skills (formerly Guide Skills) Day - ~ February 2016 (TBC)

Guide Skills Day

Navigation Skills Day helps Guides to learn a range of navigation and map reading skills and allows them to take part in some team building and communication activities. The day is open to all Guides in Dunelm and Kepier Divisions and is highly recommended for those wanting to take part in the Outdoor Guide competition as it covers many of the skills that are put to the test during the competition.

During the session Guides take part in several bases to teach them the relevant skills and allow them the chance to practice these under supervision of experienced DUSAGG members. There is often the opportunity to put their skills to the test during a short walk around the area – with DUSAGG members on hand to keep them on track.

Information about Navigation Skills Day is sent out in early January through the Division Commissioners. If your group is interested please return the group booking form by post or e-mail before the closing date.

Outdoor Scout and Guide - ~ February 2016 (TBC)

Outdoor

Outdoor is an incident hike of approximately 10 km featuring a number of bases which test the teams’ sense of adventure, teamwork skills, creativity and problem solving ability. Teams of Scouts and Guides compete for the Outdoor Scout and Outdoor Guide trophies.

The competition is open to all Scout groups from Durham City District and Guide groups from Dunelm and Kepier Divisions. Information is sent out to groups via the District and Division Commissioners during January.

The walk and bases are designed to be accessible to all but test everyone, no matter how much Scouting or Guiding experience they have. Guide teams can also take part in Navigation Skills day earlier in the year to help them learn and develop the relevant skills to help them compete in this competition.
