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 wonâ€™t stop Scouts camping!
Weâ€™re organising a month-long Virtual Camp across April, from the 01/04-30/04/20. Ending with an attempt to set the world record for the Largest Virtual Camp on 30/04/2020, when weâ€™d like as many people as possible to participate.
Take up the challenge and letâ€™s keep on #virtually camping, here are the â€śRulesâ€ťWe’re asking you allâ€¦â€¦ Hedgehogs, Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorers, Network, Leaders, Parents, and Young People interested in joining in the fun to:Â
- 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 â€śScouty activityâ€ť
- Help with cooking meal
MOST IMPORTANTLYâ€¦â€¦. Each night you participate share a creative photo, video, blog, etc. to our social media with: #CampAtHome
- Facebook: Northumberland Scouts
- Twitter: @NorthlandScouts
- Instagram: @Northumberland_Scouts
Â Then share them with your leaders and friends to show that although we canâ€™t meet â€śFace to Faceâ€ť Scouting doesnâ€™t stop!
Each Young Person who takes part will be entitled to 1 Night Away for each night they participate (as long as they arenâ€™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 30/04/20 and we get enough participants youâ€™ll be part of setting a world record!
