Thursday evening I am on Huntingdon Community radio talking about Camjam and Scouting in Cambridgeshire, between 7pm and 8pm. It’s a case of they asked if someone could come on and as the head of the youth media team I was the best person.

My questions are below, feel free to tweet the youth media team with your answers using #CambsScoutsYMT or #CambsYMT and the question number – let us know your thoughts!


16 Questions about Camjam and Cambridgeshire Scouting, plus some supplementary ones, have a think about your answers.

  1. Who are you and what is your role in Scouting?
  1. Do you wear uniform?
  1. How long have you been involved?
  1. When did you first go Camping?
  1. Describe Scouting today and how it is still relevant, as I have read and heard a lot about this campaign of #Skills4Life? But what is it really?
  1. Camjam 2019, what is it?
  1. Where is it?
  1. Who is coming?
  1. What will 2000 adults and participants do all week?
  1. I have heard that Cambridgeshire Scouts have their own radio show, is this true and how could I listen in?
  1. Could I get involved in Scouting?
  1. Where locally could I do Scouting?
  1. Isn’t Scouting just for Boys? Can Girls join? But what if I have additional needs, can I still do Scouting?
  1. You have told me about Camjam but isn’t there a bigger camp I could go to? (World Scout Jamboree, America 40,000 Scouts)
  1. Isn’t celebrity survival and television star Bear Grylls the Chief Scout? Is he the first celebrity chief?
  1. What’s the best thing about Scouting for you?

Tuesday next week, Hereward Community Radio will be experiencing a Cambridgeshire Scouts Radiotakeover between 7pm and about 8pm. Topics up for conversation include Camjam2019, the World Scout Jamboree, Gilwell24 and anything else we think about while on air.

OK I think that’s it for now, apart from how do I get Hereward Community Radio? Well it is an internet based station and you can listen via the web on your own device:

You can get the app on your phone so if mobile you can still listen to the Cambridgeshire Scouts Youth Media Team.

Kind regards
