On the original weekend of BIG Camp 2020 we will be holding Virtual BIG Camp. The event is open to all in Scouting (not just West Yorkshire Scouts).
How do i get involved?
On the weekend itself you just need to go to our facebook page (@wyscouts) and our website www.thebigcamp.org.uk. This will be live from Saturday morning.
Over the weekend on the website there will be BIG Camp activity zones with challenges or activities to do at home.
In addition we’ll be running ‘Live on Stage’ a series of pre recorded and live content hosted by our Youth Commissioner Team (with a number of very special guests). This will be streamed live on the website and facebook page.
In the evening we invite you to take part in our camp, with members camping out in gardens (or living rooms).
We will be issuing a badge for those who successfully complete a number of the challenges on the website. For those outside West Yorkshire Scouts there will be a cost for the badge. For those within West Yorkshire Scouts our hope is to make this free to members. Badge’s wont be issued until face to face Scouting restarts and will be available to pick up from the County Shop by the leaders of the Groups of young people taking part. (For groups outside West Yorkshire we can post at an added cost)
Do I need to do anything in advance ?
Most of the activities you will be able to do from materials sourced at home, however in case you want to buy in advance a kit list can be found here
To register for the badge, participants will need to upload outputs from the challenges to a google form, so would be helpful if those taking part had a gmail account (or had registered their emails to use on google beforehand). Instructions on how to do this can be found here.
The full ‘Live on Stage’ Schedule is here.
Please share this as wide as possible with your young people so as many as possible can participate in the weekend.
