Over the weekend of the 1st to the 2nd of August 2020, Beavers, Cubs and Scouts from 1st Winlaton Scout Group took part in Groups second online virtual Group Camp. With members taking part in online games and competitions along with special challenges for each section.
With nearly 40 young people taking part along with parents and younger siblings who were not quite old enough to join in with regular camps – but definitely able to join in with the Camp @ Home Event. The leaders in the group had combined over 68 activity’s which linked to the Great in Doors Badge and with special activity’s such as our Beaver section walking the distance up Mount Cheviot, the Cub section walking the distance up Hellvelyn and the Scout section walking the distance up Ben Nevis. Each Hill and Mountain represents the official Group name of each section and each member who took part gained a Hikes completed awarded for each member.
Along with live Zoom sessions for games, a Scouts own (both religious and non-religious event for all our members) on the Sunday morning and a fantastic online Campfire sing along on the Saturday night. The Beavers, Cubs and Scouts were able to take part in over 80 different activities.
All the various activities are open to all the 1st Winlaton members during the month of August to enable them to complete the various parts of the Great in Doors Staged Activity Badge, based around the 8 zones of Community, Creative, International, Outdoor, Physical, Practical, Social & Spiritual.
