Northumberland Scouts presents…


#CampAtHome has reached a global scale! With over 60,000 people registered to join in with the World Record Attempt on the 30th April!

Calling all young people from across Northumberland, the UK, and the Wider World. COVID-19 may have changed the way we do things, but it won’t stop Scouts camping!

We’re organising a month-long Virtual Camp across April, from the 01/04-30/04/20.

Take up the challenge and let’s keep on;


Here are the “Rules”. We’re asking you all…… Hedgehogs, Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorers, Network, Guides, CadetsX Leaders, Parents, and all 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 with:


– Facebook: Northumberland Scouts
– Twitter: @NorthlandScouts
– Instagram: @Northumberland_Scouts

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 1 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!

We will also be releasing a badge, necker, and t-shirt that will be available to everyone who takes part.

Register your interest in taking part in the world record attempt now!
