Scouts: Eastrek 2011

Eastrek 2011 will take place over the Easter Weekend of Friday 22 April to Monday 25 April in the New Forest.

to the success of 1st Finchampstead’s recent “Eastrek”
we will be running the event again in Easter 2011.  The hike will be
held in the New Forest and will run over the Easter weekend

This is suitable for all abilities and experiences. We stay in a large building with good facilities. Scouts are spilt into groups and they plan their hike for the following day. Each has a turn leading the group and map reading under the guidance of a leader (if required). This event is organised by David Judge, Group Scout Leader.

will be two elements to the trip this year. The more experienced walkers will
do a point to point hike where they will stay at different sites over the
weekend, meeting up at Fernycrofts Scout Camp site for one of the evenings.

the less experienced walkers we will base ourselves at Fernycrofts and do day
hikes from the site. Scouts will be accommodated in a bunk house.

aim of this weekend is to give the scouts the opportunity of developing their
navigation skills, enjoy the outdoors and work towards several badges.

will be dependent on the number of scouts partaking in the event.  The approximate cost will be £60 but an exact
figure will follow soon.
