Confido is a huge weekend of activities with a great atmosphere! 1200 Scouts, Explorers and Guides will camp together for two nights, eat in a centrally catered 60m marquee and enjoy two evenings of entertainment including bands, a disco, campfires and cinema.
Our green woodworking marquee offers respite to scouts adrenilined-out on other high octane activities. Splitting logs, using the shavehorse and pole lathe turning are calm thoughtful activites that seem to strike a cord with many youngsters. No one seems to mind waiting in a queue for half an hour for what must seem like a very short amount of time on a shavehorse and pole lathe. There is rarely enough time for each scout to make something to take away but at least they get a chance to see what it's like to work with proper wood and hand tools.
Four years ago as part of Confido we helped scouts build an outdoor chapel. See picture left.
