Area events

We hold a number of annual and other events as an Area. We also provide adult training and a calendar of other events.

Young Leader training residential and Area Explorer Scout Forum

Our next residential Young Leader training weekend will be on 1-3 November at Botany Bay near Tintern in the Wye Valley. You'll be able to choose up to 6 training sessions from the modules available.

The event will be catered, and will include time for activities, teambuilding and socialising. Accommodation is by camping (you'll need your own tent or borrow from your Scout Group or Explorer Unit) or you can choose to sleep on the floor of one of the cabins (space limited, first booked first served).

The cost for the weekend, which includes full catering, is £17 and has been subsidised by the Area. Young Leaders should ask the Group they are helping to contribute towards this cost.

Gwentrek is the ultimate expedition challenge for Scouts and Explorers in Gwent.

Be self sufficient, walk against the clock in teams with or without leaders. If that isn't enough if you find the normal routes too easy and fancy a bigger challenge take on GTx!
