Intense adventure


Scout Network members enjoyed a weekend packed with adventure at the annual event Intense.

At Woodhouse Park Scout Activity Centre near Bristol, over 250 members tackled a massive variety of activities, including the aerial runway, water bungee slide, leap of faith and crate stacking.

In the annual piano bash, an legendary tradition at Intense, participants raced to dismantle old pianos and post the pieces through a letterbox. The evening programme was just as busy, with discos, a foam party and a traditional campfire keeping everyone entertained.

Lots of participants shared stories of the weekend on social media. Gary Barron commented on Facebook: 'Intense was amazing, best weekend I have had away in a long time! Saw so many old faces and met a lot of new ones too.' Bath City Scout Network posted: 'Epic weekend at Intense. Loved the piano bash this afternoon.'

Woodhouse Park Scout Activity Centre would like to thank everyone who attended, with a special mention for the volunteers that helped the event to run so smoothly.

Intense rounds off an exciting summer of events at Scout Activity Centres, with Fundays and Gilwell 24 taking place in June and July. Next on the calendar is Scarefest, a spooktacular mix of Halloween and fireworks, and Wintercamp, a sub-zero adventure in January.
