What makes Falkoner Scouts great?

New Friends

Making new friends

The friendships and memories our Scouts make often last a lifetime

 

Adventurous activities

Scout adventurous activities take things to a new level (often literally!). Whether it be jumping off rocks into the North Sea, high ropes activities, leaps of faith, climbing, bouldering or gorge jumping we have done them all!

New Skills

Learning new skills

Scouts get to learn lots of exciting and useful skills. This can be spending nights away surviving off minimal materials and sleeping under the stars or cooking on open fires for a week whilst at camp.

Becoming independent

Much of what Scouts do has a high-level of independence and their own decision-making. We therefore tailor our programme to their wants and needs. We have received feedback from employers that our Scouts have performed better than other candidates due to their social confidence, leadership and problem-solving skills.

 

Personal challenges

We promote the Scouts to push their comfort zones. Try something new or go further, higher or longer than they did before. This could be an adventurous activity, cooking something new or perhaps a 24hr expedition

 

We have fun!

Wherever we go and whatever we do, we try to make everything fun and enjoyable
