The 50/50 team offers 14-17 year olds the opportunity to come to Poacher as a participant for half of the time and a helper on the staff team for the other half which will enable you to build up your work experience and see what Poacher is like from the other side.
This week has been a worrying one, and with new measures introduced to control the spread of Covid-19, Scouting and Guiding face-to-face activities have been called off.
As for all Guiding and Scouting events they couldn’t take place without volunteers. Without volunteers at Poacher there would be limited activities, no medical team, no admin function and no leaders to bring and support the participants – there wouldn’t be a Poacher as we know it.
2019 has been a busy year for the Poacher 2022 Senior Management Team and the Senior Leadership Team.
At the end of Poacher 2017 the organisers all breathed a sigh of relief – the event had been a real success, now we could take a well-earned break! But as the site cleared and the big clean up began we started to talk about “next time.”
