The Great Indoors Weekender

Even though the 28th are on break for the summer. UK HQ are holding a virtual camp this weekend, to which all members and non-members are invited to!

Join the UK’s biggest digital summer camp from your living room (or garden, anywhere at home – it’s up to you) on 11–12 July. With surprise celebrity guests, cooking, crafts, music and more, young people (6+) will get the chance to have fun while learning skills like giving stuff a go, thinking for themselves, and playing their part.

Get involved. Build a base camp (whether it’s a tent under the stars or a duvet dragged under the stairs), connect with us on a mobile, tablet, or computer, and you’re all set. There’ll be activities you can complete in your own time as well as live events, including a UK-wide campfire.

You can take part as an individual or as a family and dip in and out of the weekend as much as you like. There are activities you can complete in your own time as well as live events, including a UK-wide campfire.

Take a look at the programme and sign up here: ow.ly/ie2q50AsbCi

Kandersteg (KISC) 2020

Well today would have been the first day of our amazing trip to Kandersteg, Switzerland! Whilst I'm sure we are all extremely sad that this adventure won't be able to take place this time around. The health, wellbeing and safety of our members has to of course be the priority!

Scouting is the home of many a fantastic opportunity for our Young People to grow, expand and develop themselves as individuals. It's at events like these where the removal from their everyday environment empowers members to experience new challenges, make new friends (or tighten existing one) and allows them to overcome boundaries which they initially thought impossible to achieve.

Whilst 2020 might not be the year we had wished for, it has reminded me to appreciate the things we sometimes take for granted in life such as our family, friends and loved ones. When we are able to re-start our programme, I hope this unforeseen situation will give us all a new perspective on life and allow us to move forward with renewed faith and optimism for the future.

This isn't the end, rather just a pit stop! Kandersteg will be back again in a few years time (penciled in for 2024) and we'll do our best to try and have another international jamboree experience before then!

Our Young People are the future and it is the responsibility of everyone to ensure we continue to prepare them, as best we can, for what may lie ahead.

Finally, I'll leave you with a video which we showed to parents back in 2018 of what members would have expected upon their arrival to KISC.

Yours in Scouting
Jamie Tarrant-Boyce
(proud member of the 28th & KISC leader teams)
