Misbourne District
There are annual competitions for archery and air-rifle shooting. In past years we have entered two teams of four scouts in each and have been winners (with a bullseye-class team!) and runners up on occasion.

There are also District-sponsored events in 5-a-side football, mountain-biking and the 'Bridge the Misbourne' challenge held annually in October.

We are fortunate to have a couple of very active Groups within the Misbourne District who run the 'Grimsdyke Hike' (22Km in the Chilterns) in November and 'Quest' (night-time activity hike/challenge) in February. These started as District events but have been so successful they now attract teams from throughout the UK and sometimes internationally. They are the epitome of outdoor scouting and not to be missed! The experiences of one of our younger Quest teams is provided here here. (Word doc)

Buckinghamshire County
The County team organise activities and camps and offers strong support for leader training.

The most popular event for our Scouts if the 'Longridge Water Weekend' held on the Thames at Marlow in May each year. They camp from Friday evening to Sunday afternoon and the scouts can try out:

Kayaking

Canoeing

Canadian canoeing

Bell-boating

Caving (!)

Dinghy sailing (Toppers)

Power boating

Climbing

Shooting

Sit-on kayaks

Kingpin

Dinghy sailing (Wayfarers)

The older ones may even be able to build a raft and cook/sleep overnight on it whilst moored on the river!! The survivors then get to race them on the Sunday morning.
