A Look Back At Virtual Camp 2020

As we leave summer and head in to Autumn, we’ve taken a look back at our very first Virtual Camp. We’ve put together a short video made up entirely from photos you submitted during the event.  There were so many submitted we could only show a few, even if you do not appear, we hope you had a fabulous time trying lots of new activities. Can you see yourselves in there?

Don’t forget, all of the worksheets and videos are still available. Visit the Virtual Camp web pages and follow the links. If you are a leader, why not incorporate them into your own virtual programme or event? Let us know what you get up to by submitting a story here; https://www.essexscouts.org.uk/new-story/

Chocolate Mousse on Virtual Camp menu!

Scouts of all ages all over Essex (and further afield!) are heading for their tents and dens as day one comes to a close.

There have been chocolate mousse, lava lamps, pizzas in mugs, paper challenges, garden games, drumming sessions and a whole lot more as the County goes Virtual Camp mad! Video activities have been viewed hundreds of times by people all over the country and many have shared their activities on the Facebook page.

As the day comes to a close, our friends from Colchester Gangshow and Thorrington Camp Site organised a campfire for us all to enjoy all from the comfort of your own homes. Did you join the fun? Let us know!

Bring on Sunday for more fun and games :-)
