Scouts' Scavenger Hunt 2009

posted 5 Nov 2009, 08:21 by Jonathan Chicken
The Scavenger hunt challenges scouts to work with a team of friends to gather digital photographs of places, people and things from around the North East using public transport.  
Finishes: 5.00pm St. Andrews Church, Concord.

You’ll use a North East Explorer Ticket to plan your way around, using buses, metros and trains and visiting as many places as your time allows. Your Scout Leader will arrange for a suitably experienced team leader to manage your team or he or she may arrange for a young leader or adult to support you during the day. 

At the end of the day you return with your images – we work out who got the most in the least time and the winners take hope the coveted district trophy. 
  • You should be at least 10½ and no older than 14 years old. 
  • We expect you to follow your Scout Law as ‘rules’ during the day. 
  • You need to bring a completed consent form. (Spare copies at 
  • Your Scout Leader will talk to you about working together as a team and about how your team leader will lead your team. 
  • If you missed this briefing, contact your Scout Leader before the event. 
  • If you or anyone at home has any queries, please contact your scout leader. 
I’m looking forward to seeing you for a great and challenging day.

Assistant District Commissioner
