Event Details

2020 Event cancelled

Due to the increased uncertainty of where Covid 19 is going to leave events such as Be Prepared, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Be Prepared event.

We wanted to make this decision now, rather than later to prevent the level of disruption this might cause.

We must put the heath and safety and the welfare of volunteers and Young People first.

The volunteer team will discuss what happens to the event soon.

We hope to be able to hold the event at another time.

We will provide updates of new information once we have it, any queries please email bepreparedbookings@gmail.com

Booking and Payment

Bookings for 2020 are closed. Emails have been sent to groups and units who have already booked.

Learn how to survive a disaster

Would your Guides or Scouts know how to cope if disaster struck? If mains water, electricity and gas were shut off? If the shops were closed? If they were separated from their friends, family, and everything familiar to them? During Be Prepared, that’s exactly what the participants will learn as they survive the aftermath of a simulated Earthquake

An Earthquake in Bath may be fairly unlikely, but many of the circumstances it produces could happen in any disaster, in the UK or overseas. Your young people will learn to work together as teams, develop their leadership and teamwork skills, and also tick off a few “badgework requirements” along the way. And most of all, they’ll have fun.

On the Day

On the day, participants will be split into “families”, and will work in these families to undertake a variety of activities.
