It’s back! The Apex Challenge returns

This spring, the biggest ever Apex Challenge adventure event will be taking place – and now’s the time to enter. The huge overnight competition will be held in the spectacular Bramham Park Estate near Leeds on the weekend of 18th-19th April 2015.
It’s a massive national event for Explorer Scouts and members of the Scout Network from right across the UK. More than 400 young people are expected to take part in the overnight competition – packed with action and adventure.
The unique and innovative competition combines tough outdoor adventure, with teamwork, timing and technology. You could expect to find yourself tackling tough rock faces, canoeing across moonlit lakes and completing tough assault courses while competing against other teams for crucial points.
A number of Explorer units from our county have taken part in the past. If your unit hasn’t yet then this could be your year.
More details are available now on the event’s website at http://www.apexchallenge.co.uk. Registrations open on March 1st and beware, the event books up very quickly, so now is the time to get your teams sorted.
This is an adventure you won’t want to miss.

Do you have any links with Scouts or Guides abroad? If so we need you!

Do you have any links with Scouts or Guides abroad? If so we need you!

We are hoping to get as many International Scouts and Guides to Charnwood as possible, to ensure that the camp is a huge success as a Jamboree.
Please  let us know of any International links with groups that you think may be interested in coming over to the UK next year.
You don’t even need to worry your group isn’t attending the camp, just let us have their contact details, and we can sort the rest out!
The flyer with all the information on is available in Spanish and French as well as English. There is also more information available on the website www.charnwood.org
Our greatest chance of getting internationals to our amazing camp is through links that have already been made by the Scouts and Guides of Leicestershire, so I would really appreciate it if you can help in any way.
For any queries or suggestions please email:-  intbookings@charnwood.org
