Land activities

There are so many activities the young people throughout the sections are taking part in each term from Caving to pioneering, camping to quad biking. In this section you will see a selection of activities our young people have taken part in recently:

Aerial Runway

The photo shows a session at one of the man made systems that we use on one of our regular activity camps 


Something we at West Coker pride are very lucky to have our own wxperienced climbing instructors, which allows our oung people to participate in this exciting activity both on artificial and natural rock.

High Ropes:

Pushing our young people out of their comfort zone, teaches them to work as a team and overcome their fears to reach a goal.

Basic live skills:

Cooking - The Scouts are encouraged to engage in cooking in a variety of ways. On camps the Scouts and explorers cook for themselves, during the holidays we run cooking days for basic education and to meet badgework requirements and some of our Scouts have even been successful on County and regional cooking competitions.

Fun Acivities: Not only fun but improves hand eye coordination

Expressing creativity and Sports!

We really do have something for everyone here at West Coker Scout Group. If your child likes sports, we have sports and if your child is a bit more creative then we also have a number of art based activities linked locally to some community organisations and Scouting support teams. These include:

Guy Making:

Not every village has it's own Firework Display but we are again very lucky. This was an interesting and exciting arts programme put on at one of our troop meetings preparing for the evening. Something really different for the kids and again meeting more badgework.

Pizza Making

One of our summer camp activities, really lucky to have a Pizza Oven on site, but after 30 plus Pizza, hot oven, extremely hot weather exhausted.

Bread Making

Just another skill passed on to our young people during a chefs badge day, all produced a three course meal in under two hours and even cleared up after themselves.

Master at Arms: Scouters can now access a range of activities related to using fire arms. Of course all are run by our own qualified instructors and need permission forms from parents if under 18. Activities such as rifle and pistol shooting, archery, paintball, quasar laser shooting and nerf wars are all activities our young people have taken part in.

Animal interaction: As part of our programme our sections have had regular programme nights with conservation and education groups such a Carymoor waste education, Bugfest and as seen in the photo birds of prey. Amazing up close encounters for the kids

4 wheels: Ok not cars (although our explorers have done this) but cubs and Scouts have accessed quad bike sessions, go karts, peddle karts, motor bike stunt displays and 4x4 trips.
