Join other units from Bath at Strategy 2017 – a fun filled weekend for Scouts and Guides with over 20 challenges spread over 3000 acres from 23rd – 25th June.

Do you have a winning Strategy?

Strategy is a multi-activity challenge hike has over 30 bases scattered across a woodland site, which our Strategists get points for completing. You’ll have to plan your own route to make best use of the allocated time!

Last year bases included everything from pioneering to supermarket-sweep, climbing to caving and even nail-painting and custard jumping!

Who knows what this year will hold but trust us – all your physical stamina, mental prowess and Guiding skills will be tested!

What’s onsite?

The Strategy team provides full catering, running warm water wash and toilet facilities, so leaders and participants can enjoy themselves.

In the evenings there’s a host of entertainment; in The Venue there’s a disco, talent show and host of onstage shenanigans. We also have The Café where you can get scrummy hot and cold food and drinks to keep you going. It also houses an eye watering pick’n’mix display in our Tuckshop.

For the Leaders

As well as all the fun above make sure to check out The Retreat; the onsite bar hosts a selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks plus an array of more age appropriate entertainment. The resident singers, musicians and gameshow hosts will leave you asking – Who is Alice anyway?

Licence Requirements

Guides units will need a licence holder in attendance. If you do not have the relevant qualification, please let us know and we will try to partner you up with another willing leader!
