LDC1 is the first part of a leadership scout course. On the course, we learnt multiple Scout skills including mapping, compass bearings, lashings and more. We were split into patrols of about seven people and it was our responsibility to get to know each other and work together to complete a series of tasks. One of our tasks was to build a chariot to carry one patrol member across a field and back using square, sheer and round lashings; another was to complete a mini quiz using the scout laws and promise to tie a knot and find a compass bearing to move on to the next base.
We learnt the promise and laws off-by-heart, along with multiple knots and lashings. LDC1 was a great learning experience for everyone there and also a lot of fun!
