Here's what Scouts in a Bedfordshire town have been up to during lockdown

They've still been able to go to camp, virtually of course

Although Flitwick Scouts have not been able to meet face to face, they've still managed to be involved in a virtual camp.

Activities for the boys and girls aged six to 14 have included making popcorn in a tin, setting up their own den in the house, making the Scout logo out of different materials and going on an A to Z scavenger hunt in the town.

Zack Herman, who participated in the virtual camp, said: “My favourite activity was designing my own T-shirt and then tie-dying it. Every hour I had to complete a challenge. The best one was racing to put on as many T-shirts as possible in one minute; I managed 13."

Darren Reeve, lead volunteer for the group said, “It was really good to see and hear the children and young people having fun on their section nights and also at the virtual camp. The volunteers have been brilliant in setting up a programme where children can participate from their home.”
