A competitive Patrol Activity for Scouts held at a number of locations throughout Victoria at which, Patrols compete in different Outdoor Adventure Skills and Special Interest Areas. They include bushcraft, bushwalking, cooking, Scouting skills, environment and first aid. The Scout Council wishes to remind all Patrol Leaders that your Patrols are competing against themselves and a set standard, not against the other Patrols.
Patrols qualifying in each of the five activities become co-holders of the Cohen Shield. Most venues offer Cohen Shield as a weekend event, where Patrols have the chance to participate in a range of other fun events in addition to the main Cohen activities. However, some venues operate Cohen as a single day event, or offer Patrols the opportunity of participating only in a one-day competition.
