The Outdoor Adventure Team


We want to support you and show you how easy it is to get out there and have some fun.


The Kent Scout Adventure Team has primarily been put in place to support Adventurous Activities. These are the activities that The Scout Association state Leaders need to be qualified (Permit) or organise a qualified instructor to undertake that activity.


In addition we have also put in place support for activities that may not require a permit but with additional support, instructors and equipment will bring adventure to more young people.


The Outdoor Adventure Team is made up of Scout Support Units (SASUs) who focus on specific activities that sit within the overall Team. See Team Pages.


We provide:


  • 'Have a Go' sessions

  • No obligation, turn up and try activities.

  • Training for Young People, Young Leaders & Adults across a wide selection of activities.

  • Provide where possible (on request) qualified instructors for Group and District events.

  • Advice, Support, Train and Assess for Activity Permits.





Many of the programme activities you can offer your sections do not require you to have permits or National Governing Body (NGB) qualifications.


Starting at the Scout Association A-Z you will find information on a wide range of activities directly or indirectly supported by the Activities Team or afilliated / approved activity centres and organisations.


Where you need permits or quailifications the information given in these pages is designed to direct you to the relevant Activity Team who can give you the help and support you need.


If it becomes too confusing then simply click here and we will try and help you.


Please ask if in doubt!



The Outdoor Adventures Team look forward to seeing you out and about.
