Young people have missed out on all kinds of things this year so to give them something really special, Scouts are holding (cue big, boomy voice) The Great Indoors Weekender! 

Join the UK’s biggest digital summer camp from your home 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. 

To get involved, you’ll need to build a base camp (whether it’s a tent under the stars or a duvet dragged under the stairs), connect with Scouts online, and you’re all set. 

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

We’re still Scouting

We prepare young people with skills for life

We’re talking about teamwork, leadership and resilience – skills that have helped Scouts become everything from teachers and social workers to astronauts and Olympians. We help young people develop and improve key life skills. 

We believe in bringing people together. We celebrate diversity and stand against intolerance, always. We’re part of a worldwide movement, creating stronger communities and inspiring positive futures.

What do Scouts do?

Young people in the Scouts take part in an exciting programme of activities from kayaking to coding. They develop character skills like resilience, initiative and tenacity; employability skills such as leadership, teamwork and problem solving; and practical skills like cooking and first aid. And research proves it really works. A 2018 report says Scouts are 17% more likely to show leadership skills and work well in teams. They’re a third more likely to support their communities too.
