Bevy & Pack planning 2023/24

Planning for the Otter Bevy and Timber Wolf Pack. For every activity: Who is attending? Are there enough adult volunteers with the needed skills? What are the activities? When is the event? Start and end times. Is it a safe time for this activity? Where is the event? Is it a safe location? Are the directions to the meeting point clear? Do we have to make a booking? Why? Does this activity promote the values of Scouting? How are we ensuring the safety of all and the protection of the environment? Do we have the right equipment?
