Reunion 2017

About Reunion

Reunion was established to mark the first Wood Badge course in 1919. The event has run every year since 1921 (except for four years during the Second World War) and is an opportunity for adults in Scouting to experience an active, educational weekend and to meet up with friends old and new from across the globe. It's a great opportunity to learn more about projects and programme activities, share knowledge, network and have fun!

You'll see big changes at this year's Reunion. Based on your feedback, we're going back to basics and returning to the ethos of how Reunion was founded. There will be more workshops and seminars, as well as activity training and a practical, engaging programme. The event set-up has changed in order to maximise space and provide more programme and engagement opportunities for you. We'll still have the film screening, campfire and evening entertainment on both nights.

The Annual General Meeting is once again taking place on the Saturday morning of Reunion, this time on The Orchard.

On the Friday night we'll have the Lid bar and disco, and the Queen's Squiffy Woggle Pub on Essex Chase with real ales and good music. We will also have a variety of other entertainment options which will be announced soon!

On Sunday, we'll have the annual Scouts Own taking place on the Training Ground.This reflection session will be brought to you by young people from a number of faiths and beliefs. It's an opportunity for everyone to come together to reflect on the past year.

Over the weekend we'll be offering bespoke activity training and permit assessments as well as activity masterclasses. These will have to be pre-booked and can be done when purchasing your ticket for Reunion.

Tickets for Reunion are now on sale! They cost £32 per person for the weekend and can be purchased here.
