#CampAtHome – Virtual Camp
1st April 2020 – 30th April 2020
Cheshire Scouts Present:
#CampAtHome an initiative from Northumberland Scouts!
Calling all young people from across Cheshire, the UK, and the Wider World. COVID-19 (Coronavirus) 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 01/04/20 – 30/04/20. Ending with an attempt to set the world record for the Largest Virtual Camp on 30/04/2020, when we’d like as many Cheshire Scouts as possible to participate.
Take up the challenge and let’s keep on ‘virtually camping’, here are the “Rules”;
We’re asking you all… 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 a meal.
MOST IMPORTANTLY… Each night you participate share a creative photo, video, blog, etc. to our social media using the hashtag: #CampAtHome
- Facebook: 1st Ince and Elton; Mersey Weaver; Cheshire Scouts
- Twitter: @1stInceandElton; @MerseyWeaver; @CheshireScouts
- Instagram: @MerseyWeaverScouts; @CheshireScouts
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 1️⃣ 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 Virtual Certificate for joining in, we will also be awarding special Virtual Certificates for those that manage the full month. Additionally, if you take part on 30/04/20 and we get enough participants you’ll be part of setting a world record!
