There are different activities, games and challenges to suit all ages and abilities, with:
The activities that Pilots do include crafts, drama, music, dance, cooking and eating. In many ways, it is similar to Guides, Brownies, Rainbows, Scouts, Cubs and Beavers, and like those organisations, it is run by volunteers which helps to keep costs low. There are also opportunities to join other pilots throughout the country in events and camps. Pilots is offered and supported by the United Reformed Church, but there are also Pilots companies in other churches too. To find out more about Pilots, look at the national Pilots website.
