St George’s Big Weekend 2021
Somerset County are pleased to announce ST.GEORGE’S BIG WEEKEND. Following the success of Virtual Camp last May, and by popular demand, we are thrilled to be bringing you another county camping at home experience.
On 23rd– 25th April 2021, we invite all members of Scouting in Somerset to join us by pitching a tent in the garden, putting up a shelter or building a den in the lounge.
Our huge virtual campsite will be found at www.somersetscouts.org.uk and this time there will be EIGHT ZONES, full of activities and challenges for all ages. There will be something for members of all sections.
Inspirational volunteers across Somerset (and beyond) are busy developing & videoing their contributions for us to enjoy and the camp badges are in production. If you would like to get involved in producing some content for the camp – please do let us know. We’d love to hear from you.
There will be live streamed events via facebook.com/SomersetScouts/ during the weekend, a whole county promise renewal and a campfire – with lots of guest appearances.
On Sunday, we’ll be linking up with Scoutadelic for their Togetherness 2021 Global Online St George’s Day event.
Please send this information to all your youth members so that they can join in with their families. You might like to share with those on your waiting lists too – anyone can participate.
We still have to camp at home – but we’ll be doing it together!
