Introduction to Explorers_G5D016224 hour

Explorer Scouts cover the 14 to 18 age group. There are two Units in the Petersfield District, the Stirling ESU who are based at the northern part of the district and meet at the 1st Liphook Scout Group headquarters on a Monday evening. The Drum ESU cover the southern part of the district and draw members from the southern part of the district covering Liss, Petersfield, Sheet and the East Hants Villages groups. It meets on a Thursday or Friday evenings at different Group HQs.

There is a strong outdoor flavour to the programme with a wide range of activities including canoeing, rifle shooting, hiking, survival camping, and quad bikes.

Explorer Scouts have their own programmes working towards their Chief Scout Platinum, Diamond and Queen Scout Awards. They also are working towards their Duke of Edinburgh Awards.

I have booked the PADI Discover Scuba Diving session for 12 on Friday 2nd March at 7:30pm – 9:30pm. Please arrive at 7:20pm in the car park by the pool, where you will be met by the instructor.

All participants will each need to bring their swimwear, a towel, and an OLD tee-shirt to wear in the pool. All equipment is provided.

I have attached a Medical Form and Participant Statement, both of which will need to be completed fully by each participant and their parents and returned in advance via email or post. If anyone answers YES to any of the medical questions, we will need a GP to confirm that they are fit to dive. I can provide a form for the GP to complete in this instance.

If you will be bringing attendees that are under 12 years old, we will need them to watch a PADI Youth Diving video before the session can begin. Usually parents need to watch this, and countersign a document with their children, but we are happy for parents to authorise a member of staff to sign each form if you will be coming as a group. Alternatively, I can send you a link for parents to watch the video on YouTube and complete the forms at home, but if this is not done, the children will not be allowed to dive. Please let me know what is best.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any queries or require any further information, and we look forward to seeing you then.

Kind regards,
