Young Leader Module Training Weekend 14th – 16th July 2017

To reinforce our determined support for our Young Leaders in GLMW, we’re pleased to be able to tell you about the YL module training weekend being made available to us again this July. Working with the Taceham Scout District in Berkshire, we will be hosting the weekend at PACCAR Scout Camp. If you have any Young Leaders working to achieve their YL modules, this weekend enables them to complete all of their training. To take a place on the weekend, the Young Leader must have completed module A. They can send the attached forms to the address on the forms, completed with their details, together with a cheque for £48 made payable to “GLMW Scout County” to secure their place. There are only limited spaces available so completed applications will be accepted on a first come, first served basis. Please encourage your Young Leaders to apply for this valuable training.

ReBoot

Have you spent hours watching with pride as your Scouts face their fears on the high ropes, race down the twin zips or take the leap of faith and secretly wanted to have a go yourself?

Do you long to be Cub age again and crawl through the rabbit tunnels, try out crate stacking or challenge your friends in the archery range?

Would you like one day just for YOU where you can enjoy the adventure of Scouting and spend time with friends without counting children and collecting pe...rmission slips?

On 24th September, PACCAR exclusively invites ALL adult members of GLMW to REBOOT; a day packed with activities, workshops and drop-ins for you to meet new and old friends, share ideas and try them for yourself.

Places cost just £5 per person which includes all activities, workshops and lunch. To secure your place, please email karen@paccarscoutcamp.org
