SCRAM a great Success


Over 3,000 Cub Scouts, Brownies and leaders from across Surrey had a day of fun and adventure at SCRAM which was held in Hook Arena, Epsom on Saturday 17th June 2023.

Cub Scouts and Brownies were able to try many new and large activities that cannot be organised in groups or districts as well as being able to mix with Cubs and Brownies from other districts.

Over 200 activities were on offer including pedal karts, high ropes, bungy trampolines, Assault course Wire, bungee running and zorbing as well as smaller activities like making popcorn, Grand Prix table game, firing water rockets and much more. As well as having fun and enjoying the activities on offer, many activities taught them #skills for life.

During the day, a number of local Mayors from around the County visited to see what was on offer as well as CJ Ledger, Deputy UK Commissioner (Support) who spoke to the young people during the day as well as seeing what Surrey Scouting had to offer.

Oliver, a Cub Scout from Surrey aged 9 said,  “I liked the inflatable that you had to jump over so you don’t get knocked over, I think it helped that we played a similar game at Cubs which helps with co-ordination skills”

Lauren, a Cub Scout from Surrey aged 10 said “I liked the bungy trampoline because it was fun and exciting”.

Max, a Cub Scout from Surrey aged 8 said, “I liked the zorbing because it was fun and I haven’t done it before”.

Sarah, a Brownie from Surrey aged 8 said, “I liked the activities and the excitement of the day, there was lots to do”.

Nature and the outdoors are languages that can be learned. Once you identify a beech tree, tie a clove hitch or cook a simple meal over a fire that you’ve built yourself, you’ll never forget it.'
