LOOKING BACK – #CampAtHome (Virtual Camp)

The month of April saw Northumberland Scouts organise a month-long Virtual Camp (from the 01/04/20 – 30/04/20).

The “virtual camp” ended with an attempt to set the world record for the Largest Virtual Camp on 30/04/2020.

All Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorers, Network, Leaders, Parents, and Young People were invited to take part – which involved:

  • 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.

The #CampAtHome Virtual Camp was supported widely across each of our sections with a number of our Young People keen to get involved.

Here are just a selection of photos of our Young People taking part:
