Can I Come In?

You will need: Copies of the three role cards ‘Refugees’, ‘Immigration Officers’ and ‘Observers’. Copies of the information sheet ‘The right to asylum – international law’. Download these from the bottom of this page. 

This is a role play exploring the experience and rights of refugees seeking sanctuary in another country.

Divide everyone into three groups (they don’t have to be the same size),

South East & South West inter-regional camp

Event date: 
14 August 2010 (All day) - 21 August 2010 (All day)
Event location: 
Lyon's Copse, Hampshire

The camp will take place in August for a week at the Scout site at Lyon's Copse. Districts wishing to attend from the SE and SW have already expressed an interest and currently we are expecting between 500 and 650 campers. The camp is going to be supported by a website and on-line booking. This exciting camp will be organised in the same fashion as the SE and SW camps, emphasising village activity and encouraging organic co-operation without an overbearing central programme.

Co-ops Fortnight

Event date: 
19 June 2010 (All day) - 3 July 2010 (All day)

Venturers

After Pioneers, our young members join Venturers, aimed at children from 13-15.

More driven by what's happening around them and in the wider world, enthusiastic debates and discussions form a large part of the Venturer calendar.

What's special about Venturers?

While our Venturers carry on with similar kinds of activities as other groups - games, outdoor activities, hiking, swimming etc - the atmosphere is more progressive than other youth groups with some challenging debates between members.
