Programme planning

There are a lot of resources available to assist you in programme planning, but some of the key ones are:


Scouts web site. The main Scout web sit has a fabulous number of resources to assist in program planning. Just click on the section links from the main page.

Easier Scouting. This is an external site and you need to pay a yearly fee to access everything. But there are many free resources here to get you started.

Online Scout Manager. A full management system for all of Scouting, and includes programme plans uploaded by leaders.

Scouts RAM - a wonderful resource for Risk Assessments.
