Make Do Share - Spring 2017 - Raise awareness walk activity download Attend a kit night Find out how one Scout Group got on when they visited GO Outdoors for a kit night earlier this year... St. Cuthbert’s Scouts (Hull) visited the Hull store towards the end of March. At the time, we were not sure what to expect when GO Outdoors contacted us asking if we wanted to attend a kit night. As an outdoorsy group, our Cubs are quite knowledgeable about what to take to camp and hikes. However, we were pleasantly surprised with the way the friendly staff made the entire time fun and educational. The Cubs learned how to select the best rucksack to suit themselves and ensure how the rucksack was fitted correctly, how to select the correct walking boots and why they should have the right type of socks. They also went over what equipment to pack for a Hike Away. Ben from the store kept the Cubs entertained and answered any questions the Cubs could come up with. We finished the night with a look around the store; I could only imagine the size of the lists of stuff the Cubs asked their parents for! I would highly recommend contacting GO Outdoors for a kit talk as it’s a great evening. Jon Taylor Cub Scout Leader Get your Discount Code here!
