Faversham Scout District Challenge
Our centrepiece annual event.
Since 2009 we have run a night event for the Scout and Explorer Sections in the District. In 2011 we also invited Faversham's Guides and Rangers.
This is the Network's chance to put our stamp on the District and show we are here, who we are and provide a fun activity for both us and the other sections.
Or as one member has put it;
"We are a
mysterious cult rock band who come out with a highly anticipated new album
every year before sloping off the radar until next time."

District and Portsmouth, had to evade capture, obtain money and collect items
to help them escape to the safety of Shepherd Park. The teams were set off from
a secret, secure location and came across a large open field with several
market stalls to explore. At one of the stalls they used morse code to work out
what they would need to get to safety, then they took part in some games of
chance to gather money to purchase a visa to get across the border. Once
through the border the teams had to find some of the many characters to help
them, help an injured agent and negotiate
