JAMES LAWRIE SHIELD

The James Lawrie Shield was inaugurated in 2008 as a camping competition for young people participating in summer camp. It was named in honour of a former volunteer, James Lawrie, who tragically lost his life in a hill walking accident aged just 24.

The Shield is awarded to the Patrol (a team of Scouts) which demonstrates the most amount of effort and technical knowledge in four or five given fields. These could include compass work, map reading, fire craft, tent pitching, pioneering, knotting, shelter building and others from time to time. The Shield is awarded to the Patrol Leader, in recognition of their special role in leading the Patrol in each of the skills and fostering team work and team spirit.
