Virtual Camp World Record!

20 June 2020

17th Barrow (St Perrans) Scout Group have not let a small thing like a world wide lockdown stop them put the ‘out’ in Scouting

On 31st April 2020 the whole group took part in a successful world record attempt to have the biggest virtual camp (over 93 000 people took part), and then followed that with a group camp from 1st to 2nd May.

The young people slept in dens/tents in or outside, made campfires – real or fake, took part in a virtual campfire lead by Bagheera, Shere Khan and Redwood, and completed a number of problem solving tasks throughout the camp.

One of the tasks was to work as a team to complete a collaborative video, and we are very pleased with the result – please do watch it! – And watch this space for more virtual scouting exploits!
