Active Support

Scout Active Support allows people to give their time to Scouting on a flexible basis. People can still be involved in Scouting without the full-time commitment of being a leader.

It provides a resource for Managers of local Scouting including Group Scout Leaders, District Commissioners and County/Area/Region Commissioners, who can use it in whichever way is required.

Scout Active Support is for anyone over the age of 18 years. It is a way for adults to volunteer time to Scouting in a flexible way that suits them.

There is no requirement to have been involved in Scouting before joining. All that is required is a willingness to volunteer some time to support Scouting.

Target Sprint is Coming to CRAI
26/01/2021 By Dave Cook
We are deighted to confirm that we have secured a £15K Investment in Target Shooting through Sports Wales (90% Grant Funded with a 10% Contribution from CRAI Scout District Council).
The Investment is centred around upgrading the Rifle Ranges we have at CRAI Scout Activity Centre to offer 10M indoor shooting, a wider variety of targets (Knockdown, bell targets etc.), investment in AirArms MPR400 Sporter PCP Rifles along with all of the additional equipment needed to support these, Targets, Pellets and Instructor Courses for Club Coaches and Three position Shooting (Kneeling Prone and standing) as well as the equipment needed to support these shooting styles.
We will also be purchasing an Outdoor “Pop-up” range to support an Activity called Target Sprint as well as running the necessary training to allow YPST Diploma Holders to run Target Sprint sessions.
We will be registering as a Target Sprint Hub (only the fourth in Wales) and will be looking to run Monthly Shooting sessions, supported by senior coaches from across South Wales, that will be accessible by the whole community (not just Scouts).  this will help us raise funds and establish CRAI as an importnt Community Location. We will be hoping to create shooting teams to take part in National Scout and Open competitions in Target Sprint and Target Shooting.
If you, or someone you know, would be interested in getting involved in Target Sprint, the Monthly Shooting sessions or the additional courses please contact me. Obviously all of the equipment and ranges will be availible for use by existing YPST Diploma Holders (restrictions will be in place on equipment that requires specialist training as you would expect).
And OBVIOUSLY all of these activities are currently restricted by the current Pandemic and our Face to Face Scouting status of "Red".

CRAI Hawks can now train Tomahawk Instructors!
24/02/2019 By Gareth Tanswell

We've been working with 1st Rayleigh Scout Group Target Team over the past year to establish CRAI Scout Activity Park as a training centre for Tomahawk Throwing Instructors within Scouting.

The final assessment was successfully completed yesterday with the park fully recognised as a training centre.

With the lack of any National Governing Body for Hawk Throwing the 1st Rayleigh Team are recognised as amongst the most experienced in the Country and have been instrumental in creating the rules and guidelines contained within POR to allow Hawk Throwing to be run as a safe activity within Scouting.

The team from 1st Rayleigh regularly run training sessions at events such as Gilwell Reunion (they will be back there this year!) using the same training course and techniques as will now be delivered by the CRAI Hawks.

If you are interested in attending a Course – or having a dedicated Course run for your Group or District – contact the Activity Centre on bookings@park.craiscouts.org.uk to get a date agreed.
