The Great Outdoors Event is a group event open to all sections and family members. The activities will include the options of 2 or 5km jogging, 10km hike, bike rides (the Scouts + Explorers will be expected to ride 20km if they select to do this). The Beaver section may adapt the distances and activities according to their experiences.
Don’t worry if you don’t participate regular in sporting activity. There’s something for everyone.
The event is linked with the Fitness Challenge activity that the Scout section is taking part in and will take place in and around the grounds of the Chateau de La Hulpe. The event will end with a group gathering at the Chateau Cafe (at your own expense).
