Scouts take part in stay at home camp

scouts camp at homeMORE than 50 members of the 1st Lym Valley Scout Group took part in an international stay at home camp, organised by a troop in Northumberland.

By joining the event, the group helped break the world record for the largest virtual camp with more than 93,000 Scouts from across the country, and around the world taking part.

The Scouts had to build either a den or put up a tent and spend the night in it at home. They also had to pack a bag for a night away, make a campfire, take part in a Scouting activity and help cook a meal.

Members from across the Uplyme-based troop rose to the challenge, making dens, putting up tents, cooking supper and breakfast, and doing badge work. 

The group continues to run a virtual programme for its members at a time when face-to-face Scouting cannot take place, giving the Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers a chance to catch up, still have an adventure and learn skills for life.
