Lincolnshire Scouts Adventurous Activities

Activities are an integral part of Scouting, and what makes it so interesting for the young people involved. Weekly meetings are full of varied programme activity but offering adventurous activity requires a few extra planning steps and sometimes permit awards or an externally qualified person to offer that extra excitement.

The Scouts A-Z of Adventurous Activity

Lincolnshire has a strong background of providing extra training to adults so that adventurous activity is possible, either for section leaders to run themselves or to form a scout active support unit (SASU) that can be booked to come along and run activities with the relevant permits in place.

Scout Active Support Units (SASU) can offer their support in a District, a number of Districts or across the whole County. Some also attend other events nationally and even internationally.

Being part of a Scout Active Support Unit allows adults to volunteer in a flexible way, doing the things they like the most around their other commitments.

There is no need to have been involved in Scouting before, all that is required is a willingness to give some of your time to share your skills. In return, Scout Active Support members make friends, get extra training, permits and are able to join in with others who share their interests.
