During yesterdays virtual leader meeting and district blether, which was great fun, a cunning plan was hatched which I hope we can all get around.
The longest day this year just happens to fall over a weekend, so it is proposed that we have a District wide virtual camp overnight 20 / 21 June. Scouts can camp anywhere they wish just as long as it is not their bedroom or indeed a bed.
As this years Quest was postponed there will be a challenge instead.
Their challenge for the virtual camp is to cover 7.9miles (in keeping with the original Quest 79 theme) by walk/bike/pogostick/space hopper and, in doing so, to raise £7.90 for a good cause which will be the Food Bank charity Bekky is currently volunteering for. Bekky, please let everyone know which cause this is and their aims.
In accordance with guidance from Scouts HQ various this will attract 1 nights away award. It could also go towards Navigation and Outdoor challenge badge requirements if you get your Scouts to provide a route card of prior to their journey.
It will be a bit of fun with a serious element to it and I hope as many of you as possible will take part.
