Nature & Outdoors

Nature and Outdoors_Camp4


The natural world provides immense possibilities for the development of young people through real-life challenges and adventures. It opens our minds to the wonders of the world, and can help to strengthen our values. Living in the natural world helps us to get back to essentials and helps in discovering things of genuine significance.

Being in Nature & Outdoors:

  • Allows Scouts to push ourselves and find our limits
  • Teaches Scouts to care for, and protect the environment
  • Encourages an appreciation of natural beauty and its complexity
  • Strengthens group life, and the bond between the members
  • Gives opportunities to explore our own spirituality
  • Can be unforgiving, offering real learning opportunities with real consequences
