Parc Le Breos
Swansea SA3

The ‘Swansea & Gower District’ of Glamorgan West Area Scouts will be running an Incident hike on the Gower on Satuday 1 st April 2017. The event will begin at 0900 with drop off and collection from Parc-le- Breos Scout Campsite (behind the Gower heritage centre), so please ensure all scouts arrive

The finish time is at 1700 at the same place. Scouts will need to carry a packed lunch, water bottle (certain bases will have a water supply for refills), emergency rations (not to be eaten en route) and waterproofs.

Each troop can enter as many patrols as they wish provided they are between 4 – 7 in size, and contain a range of ages. On arrival the teams will be given the grid references for all the challenges along the route and will have to complete 2 copies of a route card before they can start (templates provided on the day). The route will be approximately 10km in length.

The day will finish with refreshments back at the Parc-le- Breos. Scores will be collated after the event with points available for accuracy of route cards, success at completing incidents and teamwork during the day.
