I googled "team challenges scouts and
found your web site. I am so impressed. We are a small scout group (45) in
Redcliffe, Queensland, Australia and have 21 scouts with only two leaders,
one older experienced leader and one new leader. My son is one of three
Patrol leaders and is struggling with a very young patrol so we are hunting
for fun Team challenges to make them work together, challenge each other.
Your site has given us some great programming ideas, thanks heaps - Australia

As a new Cub Leader/Scouter in Charge I
was quite apprehensive of organising my first camp for the boys. I knew what
I needed to do and your website resources have just made my life a whole lot
easier! Many thanks for making them available. YiS Iain - United Kingdom

What a brilliant website. I have just
started as AESL in Leeds and tripped over this while researching tracking. I
think I could build a full years' programming from this little lot. Well
done, thanks, and keep up the good work. I will be popping in to 'borrow'
some of your ideas from time to time. - United Kingdom

Round and round the world we go, and we keep coming back
to your website for information. Sorry you don't have Rovers anymore in your
village - they're great. Enjoy.
...makes it all worthwhile...
