The Great Indoors Weekender

The UK’s biggest digital summer camp

#TGIWeekender 11–12 July

From graduations to trips with friends, young people have missed out on all kinds of things this year. We think they deserve something really special – something for Scouts and non-Scouts, all around the globe – so we’re holding (cue big, boomy voice) The Great Indoors Weekender!

Join the UK’s biggest digital summer camp from your living room (or garden, anywhere at home – it’s up to you) 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.

Get involved. Build a base camp (whether it’s a tent under the stars or a duvet dragged under the stairs), connect with us on a mobile, tablet, or computer, and you’re all set. There’ll be activities you can complete in your own time as well as live events, including a UK-wide campfire...

Worried about missing your favourite TV show or a Zoom quiz with friends? Don’t. Dip in and out of the weekend as much as you like.

If you’re a volunteer and would like to run an online session for your local group as part of The Great Indoors Weekender, you can also dip in and out of the programme, adding your own stuff.

The weekend’s completely free. Donations are (for obvious reasons) very welcome so we can keep helping young people gain #SkillsForLife. Donate today.
