These next pages give fun, challenging, adventurous, exhilarating Activities and some have an element of controlled risk.
Activities, can be character building and teach team spirit. Every Scout should be given the chance to try one or more adventurous activities.
The primary role of the County activities team is to support the provision of activities, enabling young people to take part in adventure and challenge themselves, whist making sure this is done safely & within the rules of UK Scouting. With the correct equipment, instruction and leadership these can become very enjoyable activities. Within Cambridgeshire, teams exist to teach many aspects of Land Activities to both Young Persons and to Adults.
The Activities team is headed up by Tony Best, as ACC Activities. Within his role, Tony manages all the activity instructors and assessors for the County. Tony is the right person to go to for advice on anything to do with activities, camping permits and the rules that need to be followed when running or taking part in activities.
