Strategy & Evolution Update

We’re really excited to let you know that Strategy is now over 50% full. Don’t forget to make sure your Scouts are booked on before the price increase on the 30th April. Last year over 600 Scouts, Explorers and Network members from Gloucestershire attended over the two weekends, fully catered and now on a site even closer to the forest why not come and join the adventure?

Strategy is a challenge event for Scouts that lets them loose in our 3,000 acre ‘Play Area’. The multi-activity challenge hike has over 30 bases scattered across our woodland site, which our Strategists get points for completing. You’ll have to plan your own route to make best use of the allocated time!

Last year bases included everything from Pioneering to Supermarket-Sweep, Climbing to Caving and even Nail-Painting and Custard Jumping! Who knows what this year will hold but trust us – all your physical stamina, mental prowess and Scouting & Guiding skills will be tested!

Evolution decided to throwaway the challenge event rule book, why have the same challenge every year? So year on year we provide you with a new challenge (and ultimately a new challenge for ourselves too!). So what can you expect from the main event? The main event always tries to challenge your scouting teamwork and skills with either physical bases or more mental challenges. So far we’ve had assault courses, inflatables, air rifles, a cave bus, and even scrabble. So come join the fun and see what is in store for you this year!
