Scout Adventures Events aim to provide a memorable event experience to Young People within Scouting from all over the country. A unique and exciting event programme is a crucial element to achieve this aim. The Fundays event, targeted at Cubs and Beavers is the key national event for this age range and represents an opportunity to deliver adventurous, creative and fun activities for this group of young people.

This an exciting opportunity for a volunteer to lead the organisation of Funday’s, one of our biggest events of the year.

The role forms the link between zone/area managers and the overall organisation for Scout Adventures Events.
