Report Copyright Infringement View in OSM UK View in OSM NZ


This challenge is designed for Northala Hills, Northolt, Middx. There are 4 small hills and the challenge is to make the Scouts work as a team, plan and read. The Challenge is to collect parts to make a kite from the top of each hill but by completing smaller challenges. If the kids don't plan and read they end up charging up and down the hills many many times. Kites should be substituted for anything else, they were naff, maybe Trangia to make cup of tea.
