    Stomp 2018 – 17th November.

    The Stomp is an annual night event for Scouts and Explorers, incorporating a wide variety of team work challenges and activities on a mystery route (usually 7/10 miles) around the Stroud Valleys.

    Starting and finishing at Penn Wood Scout Centre teams of 3 – 6 Scouts or Explorers, accompanied by a leader/adult if needed, set off round the route with the aim of scoring the most points on all of the challenges and navigating round a route at night.

    Most groups find the navigation the most challenging aspect – which is why we keep the checkpoint locations secret until we send you your start times. We ask teams to use a map and compass to navigate – no GPS systems.

    For more details visit us at www.farriersstomp.org.uk.

    Leaders will be able to book from 1st September
