Date: 29th Feb 2020 Author: Jess Morgan

This is an amazing opportunity for Explorers and Network members to complete their Gold DofE Residential during ‘Busy Week’ at Huish Woods Scout Campsite in Taunton. Monday 27th – Friday 31st July 2020.

Through the week, you will experience what it is like to run a campsite and will be involved in looking after visiting groups, campsite maintenance, planning and running activities (including an open evening for local Scouts) as well as taking part in some activities yourself. You will be creating your own menu for the week and will cook as a team. £80 – the cost will include all the food and activities.

Open to any Explorers, Young Leaders and Network members. If you are interested, please email


Nature and the outdoors are languages that can be learned. Once you identify a beech tree, tie a clove hitch or cook a simple meal over a fire that you’ve built yourself, you’ll never forget it.'
