Virtual Camp Activities 2020

No one has to miss out on the Somerset County Virtual Camp!

  • On Saturday 9th May 2020, thousands of us pitched a tent in the garden, put up a shelter or built a den in the lounge!
  • There were 40 activities for all ages. Check out  to see photos and videos that members shared with us from across Somerset, the UK and beyond. We all had a wonderful weekend!
  • The opening and closing ceremonies, plus our evening campfire are still available to view on our Facebook page.
  • If you weren’t able to camp with us, you are welcome to join in now! All the activity zones remain open and the videos are still there for you to enjoy.
  • We are very excited to announce that there will be a camp blanket badge available for all those who took part … details will be released soon
  • We had to camp at home – but we did it together!

Finally, I’d like to say a HUGE thank you to all those amazing volunteers who produced programme ideas for this camp, to Jess for the brilliant logo, to our Media Manager Rob and to Ruth – without whom none of this would have been possible.

Enjoy the activities if you are exploring them in 2021…. and stay safe, Somerset!
