Your Physical Fitness

Dragon Skin is a physical event, it involves walking each day, and completing activities that may require you to lift, run, jump, crawl or do other physical tasks. You do not need to be an athlete to attend Dragon Skin, the average Venturer Scout will do just fine, however, if you have recently had an injury that restricts your movement, ability to walk or to do activities or are recovering from surgery then you may need to sit out this year’s Dragon Skin. You can come every year until you are 18 as a Venturer and thereafter as a Rover.

If you have had a recent or pre-existing injury or surgery and would like to attend you MUST have your Doctors permission to attend with a Doctors Certificate citing the Letter For Doctor’s (Below) The Letter for Doctors explains Dragon Skin to your Doctor to allow them to make an informed decision about your attendance. You must also Notify Dragon Skin immediately by email
