Keeping Scouts Safe With Knifes, Axes and Saws
Safety is our primary concern but we also understand that Scouts love to have their own penknives and that they are genuinely useful and practical tools for many of the activities we undertake.
For a Scout to be able to bring a knife to camp they must have completed the first stage of the Survival Skills badge which teaches knife safety AND have a permit from us to bring a knife.
We know Scouts will treat their knives responsibly and that we'd never have to have a discussion with them about how difficult regaining that permit would be... would we Scouts?!
