During the month of April, Northumberland Scouts came up with the idea of organising a virtual camp with Scouts from all over the UK joining in and camping at home.

Chief Scout Bear Grylls and astronaut Tim Peak have launched a challenge for all Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Young Leaders and Leaders to hike to the Moon! This is being done in support of Children in Need. If everyone walks just 1 mile and makes a donation to Children in Need them we should be able to reach our target of getting to the Moon.
Of course during the current COVID crisis, safety is a top priority, so please stick to government guidelines while helping with the challenge and you can always hike round your house rather than going out!
