Welcome fans of Scouting adventure!

After the disruptions of last year, we are pleased to announce that The Grimsdyke Hikes will be back this year, following recent confirmation that Scouting readiness levels in England are now at green.

(https://www.scouts.org.uk/volunteers/getting-back-together-safely/the-readiness-levels-across-uk-scouts/)

APPLICATIONS ARE NOW OPEN

27th and 28th November

Please note the following COVID 19 precautions in place for this year:

All adult leaders, helpers and shadows should complete lateral flow tests the evening of 26th November and show confirmation of a negative test at check-in.

Check-in times will be allocated in order to avoid congestion at HQ.

Further restriction may be imposed if the readiness level return to YELLOW status and teams will be advised accordingly.

The Grimsdyke Hikes are fun and challenging tests of orienteering, navigation and endurance in the beautiful Chiltern Hills around the ancient and mysterious earthworks of Grim’s Dyke.

Open to Scouts, Guides and Explorers, there are one or two-day events depending on the age of the participants and the level of competition.

Test your map and compass skills, find the hidden check points, race against the clock... the hikes are as competitive as you choose, but always great fun.

The website explains everything but you can download most of what you need here. There's also a flyer you can to use with your troop, parents, carers and helpers.
