Pro-Badge is an Activity Badge Training Scheme, which uses the resources of the Solent Scout Training Centre, to the best advantage of the Cubs, Scouts, Explorer Scouts and Scout Leaders. The scheme provides training for badges that require predominantly outdoor Scouting activity or natural resources. We run our courses from October to April. For cubs we run the following badges: - Outdoor Challenge; Outdoor Challenge Plus; Navigator; Global Conservation; Map Reader; Naturalist. For scouts this season we are running the following badges: - Camp Cook; Pioneer; hiker; Campsite Services; Global Conservation; Camper; Naturalist; Survival Skills The 2nd weekend of The Pro-Badge Training Scheme 2013/2014 season took place on the weekend of 22nd - 24th November 2013. We ran two courses for Scouts and one for Cub Scouts. We ran the Navigator badge for the Cub Scouts the activities included star gazing, tracking, making their own maps and learning all about map symbols. On the Sunday morning the Cub Scouts enjoyed a treasure hunt. The Scouts took part in the Pioneer badge, which saw the patrols creating both large and small pioneering projects over the weekend. The second Scout course was the Campsite Services badge - this was the first weekend of two weekends, the other taking place in February. The Saturday was spent learning how to use tools and practical work including some plumbing and maintenance work. They also learnt about all the administrative things involved in running the site. The Sunday was time for doing further practical work in the area around the pond at Lyons Copse. On our next weekend in January we are running the global conservation badge for the Cub Scouts and the global conservation badge for Scouts. Pro-Badge is a county run team of leaders most of whom have at least one other role within Scouting. We are always looking for new volunteers – could you help with any of the badges we run or would you like to help with one our support teams – admin; first aid; kitchen? We also need a new Treasurer – Clive Clark who took over as Camp Leader last season is currently also covering his old job as Treasurer. If you think you can help we would love to hear from you – we can offer fun weekends; nice working conditions. Please contact Scissors aka Clive Clark on 07761 912914 or email scissors@pro-badge.org.uk The Pro-Badge Team 20
