leslie's guiding traditions
Scouting had been invented as an outdoor adventure organisation. All of the games were based around outdoor activity, with only a few indoor activities thrown in to allow for the occasional meeting held during foul weather.
And although nowadays it can be harder to arrange outdoor meetings, there are still some outdoor traditions. Others tend now to be relegated to camp, when there is more time and the facilities to do gadget making, fire lighting and wide games without having to keep half an eye on the clock.
