Scout Night Hike 2017

Saturday 25th November 2017

Lannock Farm Weston

The annual District Night Hike and First Aid Competition takes place during the late Autumn. Teams of between 4 and 7 Scouts, take up the challenge of navigating their way through approximately 10 miles of Hertfordshire countryside by foot.

Walking is broken up by a series of `incident bases', ranging from dealing with a first aid scenario to lighting a small fire to burn through a string line, half a metre from the ground! to mention just two. See the pictures above for more examples!

For those who like the competitive element, there are trophies for the fastest walking time, the highest score on the incident bases and an overall Night Hike trophy. A trophy will also be awarded to the team gaining the highest score on the First Aid Base
