About the event

Scouts Scotland's transition camp for the Cub to Scout section returns this year, but to a new home - Scout Adventures Meggernie.

The programme includes activities to encourage Cubs and younger Scouts to develop the skills required for a Troop summer camp and the more adventurous nature of activities that Scouts participate in.

Features of the programme include team building, Scout campcraft skills (patrol tent pitching, maintenance and striking; firelight and alter fire cooking, camp gadgets, patrol campsite layout, etc) in addition to all the regular activities offered at Meggernie.

Food is provided, and a cooked meal (Saturday dinner) will be undertaken as an activity.

This event is for Cubs aged from 9 1/2 to Scouts aged up to 12. We encourage Group (Pack and Troop) booking but will accept single Pack or Troop bookings.  A 10 per cent deposit is required at booking.

Groups who participate will be asked to provide feedback after a suitable interval on the transition numbers of those who have moved up and stayed in the Troop.
