*************************


The Quest is the ultimate incident hike, attracting nearly 300 Scouts, Guides and Explorers from the Misbourne Valley and beyond. The Quest has been up and running annually since 1988.

The Quest provides a truly challenging, fun and rewarding opportunity, testing a unique combination of skills.

Each year the event has theme. We've had everything from James Bond to Royal Weddings and this year's theme will be "Moon Landing" in celebration of the 50th anniversary of mankind's first landing on the the moon. Be prepared for some spacey activities!

Check out the gallery for some fun pictures from previous events
The Quest tests a unique combination of navigation, physical and mental tasks and teamwork. Navigating cross-country, teams must find Incident Bases where they compete in fun challenges to collect points. 

The teams with the most points, wins!
The Quest is a fun and rewarding event and as competitive as you want. But be prepared for a genuine challenge. The total distance walked in about 16km and much of it will be in the dark. 

The hike takes place in just about any kind of weather. After walking, teams normally get beck to HQ well after midnight, having had a tiring - but fun - day.
