Why The Big Adventure?

Would you like to recruit more adult volunteers?

Are you already planning a summer camp or event?

The Big Adventure is a great way to use your summer activity to encourage more parents and other adults into Scouting.


Why you should organise a Big Adventure

  • Offering parents a defined role is an easy way to explain how they can easily volunteer and help the group.
  • You may find someone who is happy to cook, book transport – or you could discover a qualified activity instructor.
  • Combining the skills and time from a group of parents will create a fun-filled event. 
  • You'll showcase how volunteering makes a difference for our young people, in an informal environment.
  • If parents take part in the organisation and running of a Big Adventure, your leaders will have more time to run the camp.
