Hampshire ‘Camp at Home’ challenge

Posted on Tuesday, May 5th, 2020

The Hampshire Camping challenge has been adapted for camping at home. To get the camping challenge badge with #hscampathome you simply have to ‘camp’ a certain number of nights before the end of the year.  Any nights can count from January. 

We will also accept ‘camping’ indoors, maybe in a den you have built or a pop up tent. Sleeping in your bed doesn’t count! There will be a prize for the most interesting place.

This challenge is now open to Beavers (min 3 nights), Cubs (min 6 nights), Scouts (min 9 nights), Explorers, Network and Leaders (min 12 nights). Section leaders can complete with their section (I.e. do same number of nights) if they wish.

There are some ideas for extra Scouting challenges that can do done while camping to get the badge, plus some additional ideas for virtual camps:

Here are ideas on where you can camp:
* Camp in your garden
* Hammock or bivouac
* Under a table or bed
* Set up your tent indoors without pegs* Sleep in the bath tub
* Sleep in the under stairs cupboard

You can sign up as an individual (Explorer, Network & Leaders only) or leaders can sign up a section. Please note that virtual certificates will be presented and badges will be available for purchase for approx £2 for Beavers, Cubs & Scouts via leaders. Explorer, Network and Leaders will be provided by the County team.
