The scouts had a strict kit list and were split into teams. They set off through the forest having to reach check points on the way.
The object of the exercise is to complete the whole route whilst avoiding being caught by the enemy agents. The agents were patrolling most of the area, but there were some safe area`s which were defined on the map the scouts had to follow.
It was a bit scary knowing your child was out in the middle of a large forest with only a small group of children his own age. The good news was there were teams of friendly forces monitoring the children as they progressed through the forest.
Aaron had a great time and came home after 6pm very smelly. It was straight in the shower for him and a good wash.
Aaron team completed the task with the quickest time. Aaron was the navigator map reader. To learn more about the scouts click link below.
