Head of Survive Zone - District Camp 2021

The aim of this zone is to tick off items of badge work which aren’t easy or practical for leaders to do themselves as they don’t have the skills or resources to do them. This zone needs to evolve based on the sections taking part, for example its acceptable to have an activity for beavers lighting candles but then the Explorers would get an activity involving the safe use of a felling axe.
