Duke of Edinburgh (DofE) Aberdeenshire is organising a virtual campout for the first night of the school holidays.
The campout will take place on Friday, July 3 and is aimed at participants in the DofE Aberdeenshire programme, but anyone else who would like to take part is encouraged to do so.
DofE expeditions and training meetings in Aberdeenshire were suspended in March, so this is meant to be a chance to have some fun at home. DofE Aberdeenshire participants will even get a certificate to show for it.
While it won’t count towards DofE Award sections, participants can have an adventure at home by sleeping in a den indoors, or perhaps a tent or other weatherproof shelter in the garden.
They will be encouraged to take part in five activities, linking up with other members of their DofE team virtually.
You can find out more information on how to take part in the virtual campout on the DofE Aberdeenshire website.
If you’ve never put up a tent before and want to see how it’s done, the DofE team has put together this instructional video for you.
