The little ones took part in nature trails, learned how to cook pigeons sustainably, air and safely shoot, and fly on Scouts and Cubist Day.
It was held at Peterborough’s East of England Arena and was organized by Kids Country and the British Shooting and Conservation Society (BASC).
Curtis Mossop, BASC’s head of roadmaps, said: “This is an event we’ve been planning for a long time and I’m really pleased with its success – the response has been fantastic. “Providing the nearly 120 Cubs and Scouts with hands-on, engaging and educational activities is a real team effort, but it’s another example of the amazing partnership BASC is involved in for benefits for young people.
“It’s nice to see so many young people with a real thirst for knowledge and passion about the countryside participating and enjoying themselves. We’ve designed a series of dedicated activities, all centered around Scout awards and badges, that help contextualize the experience. “
Sandra Lauridsen is the education director of Kids Country, the non-profit education arm of the Eastern Agriculture Association of England. She said: “It’s great to be back hosting live events at the Galleries – for kids nothing beats this form of learning, feeling with their hands and seeing with their own eyes as well. talk to the farmers who grow our food. “
