Visit the Scout Museum at Youlbury Scout Activity Centre, Oxford




As it says. Normally open on Saturday mornings only. Other times by arrangement with Curator including evenings. More than 3000 badges, old uniforms, quizzes, kudu horn, and really enthusiastic staff. Has been used just for evening visits of an hour or on camp to fill up 20 minute slot. Also, if children well behaved, will allow them into museum by themselves during your camp whilst you prepare dinner, etc. Displays on Jamboree too. Sometime offer morse code and sempahore activities. Have the largest stock of Gang Show memorabilia known. All staff are part of their own SAS Unit and still actively involved (with many years experience) so know a lot about the Movement. Incorporate with weekend of camping to sign lots of badgework off!
