Five reasons to go to ScoutFest

Five reasons to go to ScoutFest

10 June 2019

We’re really excited to be hosting ScoutFest at Fordell Firs again this year and we’re working hard behind the scenes to make sure this year’s events is a fun, inspiring and valuable event for all our adult members.

If you’re thinking about coming along this year, but haven’t booked your place yet, here’s why we think you should make some space in your busy diary.

1. It's going to be fun

We know how hard our volunteers work planning and delivering camps and amazing experiences for young people, so we thought it would be nice to host a camp that gives you the chance to kick back and relax and enjoy camping with your Scouts friends. You’ll be able to try out all of Fordell’s activities, plus we’re putting on a bar and some entertainment, so you’ll have plenty of opportunities to socialise.

2. You'll pick up some new ideas

If you’re looking for some fresh programme ideas, ScoutFest will be the place to be. We’re inviting lots of exciting organisations along who are looking forward to sharing their resources and activity ideas with you.

3. You can fit in some training

It can be hard to find time for training in between Scouts, jobs and family life! At ScoutFest there will be lots of opportunities to achieve some training requirements, as well as some less formal sessions to introduce you to some new skills.

4. You can ask an expert

If you’ve got any questions about Scouting, ScoutFest will be a great time to get some answers. We’ll have experts on hand to share information about anything, from funding to permits, and you’ll also be able to meet other volunteers from other regions and districts to find out how they deal with any challenges or issues you might face.

5. You’ll be part of something amazing

ScoutFest is the only Scotland-wide gathering of adult members and after a successful launch last year, we want to see this event grow each year to give our volunteers an opportunity to feel part of a national community and get the support they need to deliver amazing experiences for young people.
