Knife & Axe Camp with Climbing & Abseiling

16 – 17 March 2019

We will be camping as patrols at Chalfont Heights Scout Camp. The camp is open to all and during the weekend we will be concentrating on how to use a knife, saw and axe safely.


The scouts will be working towards and hopefully gaining the 1st Cippenham knife, saw and axe certificate of competence. This is an annually renewable certificate and once awarded allows a scout to carry a penknife and use an axe and saw at camps.


Scouts who already have the certificate need to renew and will also be given the chance to advance their skills by learning how to use a felling axe, a 2 person saw and more advanced forestry techniques.


Scouts are encouraged to bring their own penknife but this is not essential.


On the Saturday evening we will be spending 2 hours climbing and abseiling.


Please return the slip below as soon as possible and no later than 14 March.
