Girl Camping

What are we doing?

Beavers, Cubs and Scouts can camp indoors or outdoors, and any activities they complete during the camp we’ll be able to put towards their badge work. They’ll also get ‘The Campover 2020’ badge for their camp blanket.

Scouts and Guides across Derbyshire are joining in with this #derbyshirecampover.

The full Campover is running Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights so you can sleep out for all three nights if you want! As a group we’d love it if everyone could have their camp on at least the Saturday night.

REGISTER THAT YOU ARE JOINING IN ON OSM    –    If you don’t we wont order you a badge!



Please use the 1st Hathersage Scout Group Facebook page to upload any photos from the camp as we’d love to see what the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts get up to – we’ll set up an album which everyone should be able to post to! If you can’t do this, please email your leader.


If you post on your own social media can you please use #derbyshirecampover and if you can tag the group, please do! Always make sure that you have appropriate permission before sharing photos.

We’re definitely more than happy for siblings (and parents!) to get involved too – the more the merrier!
