February is YouShape month and across the county, there will be plenty going on! Find out more about the events and activities being organised by the County Youth Commissioners...
The theme of winter survival will be the Hunger Games, which leaves us wandering ... will you survive? and will you defeat the Capitol and bring democracy to the Districts? The challenge will be held at a secret location within Kent to keep it secret from the Peacekeepers.
Teams of 3 or 4 will volunteer at tributes for their Districts/Units, to undertake a hike with surprise challenges along the way stopping you from proceeding until they have been completed or time runs out. Competing units are asked for an adult leader to help kit check and run a challenge.
We change lives by offering 6 to 25-year-olds fun and challenging activities, unique experiences, everyday adventure and the chance to help others so that we make a positive impact in communities.
Activities as diverse as kayaking, abseiling, expeditions overseas, photography, climbing and zorbing. Also can learn survival skills, first aid and much more.
There’s something for every young person. It’s a great way to have fun, make friends, get outdoors, express your creativity and experience the wider world. arrow_forward
This everyday adventure is possible thanks to our adult volunteers, who support us in a wide range of roles from working directly with young people, to helping manage a Group, to being a charity Trustee.
We help volunteers get the most out of their experiences by providing opportunities for adventure, training, fun and friendship.
There is no requirement to have been involved in Scouting before joining. All that is required is a willingness to volunteer some time to support Scouting. arrow_forward
