Calling all young people from across Northumberland, the UK, and the Wider World. COVID-19 may have changed the way we do things, but it won’t stop Scouts camping!
Northumberland Scouts are organising a month-long Virtual Camp across April, from the 1st to the 30th. The camp will end with an attempt to set the world record for the largest virtual camp on the 30th of April, when we’d like as many people as possible to participate.
Take up the challenge and let’s keep on #virtually camping, here are the “Rules”We’re asking you all…… Hedgehogs, Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorers, Network, Leaders, Parents, and Young People interested in joining in the fun to:
- Pack a bag
- Build a den at home / pitch a tent in the garden/ hang up a hammock (whatever you can)
- Sleep in your shelter of choice
- Build a ‘campfire’ (real or virtual)
- Take part in a “Scouty activity”
- Help with cooking meal
MOST IMPORTANTLY……. Each night you participate share a creative photo, video, blog, etc. to our social media with: #CampAtHome
- Facebook: Northumberland Scouts
- Twitter: @1stStocksfield and @NorthlandScouts
- Instagram: @Northumberland_Scouts
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 Night Away 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 if you take on the challenge! Everyone who participates will also get a #VirtualCertificate for joining in, we will also be awarding special #VirtualCertificates for those that manage the full month. Additionally, if you take part on the 30th of April and we get enough participants you’ll be part of setting a world record!
