Camp at Home!

We are joining other groups from across Northumberland, the UK and the whole family of Scouting…

COVID-19 may have changed the way we do things, but it won’t stop Scouts camping!

You’re invited to take part in our first ever virtual camp during April 2020. 

The event will run from 1st April – 30th April 2020. 

You can [email protected] for just 1 night or for the whole 30 nights, just get stuck in and have fun! 

On 30th April 2020, Scouts around the world are attempting to set the world record for the largest virtual camp, so make sure you’re prepared!

Take up the challenge and let’s keep up the #scoutsolation activities. 

– Pack a bag
– Build a dent at home/ pitch a tent in the garden/ hand up a hammock (whatever you can)
– Sleep in your shelter of choice
– Build a ‘campfire’ (real or virtual)
– Take part in a ‘Scouty activity’ (check out our District challenges)
– Help with cooking a meal

Each night you participate, please make sure that you send a creative photo, video, blog, etc. to our social media with:

Then share them with your leaders and friends to show that although we can’t meet ‘face-to-face’ Scouting doesn’t stop!

Each Young Person who takes part will be entitled to 1 Nights Away award for each night they participate (as long as they aren’t sleeping in their bed). Meaning you could get up to an extra 30 Nights Away awards if you take on the challenge!

Everyone who participates will also get a certificate for joining in, we will also be awarding special certificates for those who manage the full month. 

Additionally, if you take part on 30th April 2020, you’ll be part of setting a world record!

Let us know if you via email if would like to take part on the 30th and we can register as a group.
