Annual report

Annual Report 2019

The 2019 Apex Challenge will always be memorable for various reasons. We took the event to a new area on the Ampleforth Estate in North Yorkshire. Hundreds of Scouts had a fantastic weekend of adventure. And the mud. Lots and lots of mud!

What the weekend proved more than anything is how even bad weather doesn't get in the way of staging a brilliant Apex Challenge weekend. We had new activities, a great new band entertaining us on the Saturday night and everyone coming together, in spite of the weather, to enjoy three days together.

The latest annual report looks back at the planning for that weekend and includes a summary of the event finances.
