Program for Three Mid-Week Meetings & One Weekend in Camp, Hostel, or Scout Headquarters.

The time table has been arranged on the assumption that on the final weekend catering will be centralized, but that Patrols will do their own cooking except that tea each day will be served centrally.

If all meals are provided by a Service Patrol, times should be adjusted as necessary with a considerable gain for actual training periods.

For non residential weekend Courses see Long Weekend notes.
