Camp At Home

Date: 24th Apr 2020 Author: Ciarán Carr

The following is an extract from a Northumberland Scouts Facebook post. You will see they have been running a “Camp at Home” for April.

On Thursday 30th they are trying to set a world record for Camping at Home.

If any of our Young People would like to join in and help them with the challenge you simply need to register and send a photo of the camp.

This is the day before our Virtual Group Camp and the tent or den can be used for both.
