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.
- Who are you and what is your role in Scouting?
- Do you wear uniform?
- How long have you been involved?
- When did you first go Camping?
- 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?
- Camjam 2019, what is it?
- Where is it?
- Who is coming?
- What will 2000 adults and participants do all week?
- I have heard that Cambridgeshire Scouts have their own radio show, is this true and how could I listen in?
- Could I get involved in Scouting?
- Where locally could I do Scouting?
- Isn’t Scouting just for Boys? Can Girls join? But what if I have additional needs, can I still do Scouting?
- You have told me about Camjam but isn’t there a bigger camp I could go to? (World Scout Jamboree, America 40,000 Scouts)
- Isn’t celebrity survival and television star Bear Grylls the Chief Scout? Is he the first celebrity chief?
- 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: https://tunein.com/radio/Hereward-Radio-s240317/
You can get the app on your phone so if mobile you can still listen to the Cambridgeshire Scouts Youth Media Team.
