Cubs, Beavers and Scouts go free at The Great Wonderfest!
Announcing a brilliant Scout ‘Family Camp’ at the heart of an amazing new festival on the Isle of Wight hosted by Dick and Dom
Monday 29th July – 4th August: 7-Day Camp
Thursday 1st – Sunday 4th August: 4-Day Camp
The Great Wonderfest, an exciting new family entertainment festival hosted by TV legends Dick & Dom, has teamed up with Scouts IOW to launch ‘Scoutfest’, which invites Beavers, Cubs and Scouts from all over the UK to join them for the ultimate summer family camp!
‘Scoutfest’ will have a dedicated campsite at The Great Wonderfest, based at Duxmore Farm, Isle of Wight, offering a brilliant environment for camping, rambling and outdoor activities. Scouts go free and have the chance to opt for a 7-day or 4-day camp, where Scout groups from all over the country will be able to experience #SkillsForLife in a fantastic setting.
The Scouts motto is “Do more. Share more. Be more.” and what better way to experience this than by sharing an amazing outdoor experience with your family, as well as fellow Scouts from all over the country.
‘Scoutfest’ coordinator Malcolm Cox (MaC) says, “There’s always lots happening on the Isle of Wight and our Scouts take every opportunity to get involved with carnivals, processions, fetes and festivals across the Island. We’re especially pleased that Dick and Dom and the team at The Great Wonderfest have asked us to run Scoutfest within their festival. Together, we hope to set a new standard for bringing family fun to the Scouting experience!”
Dick, from festival hosts Dick and Dom, says, “It’ll be great to have the Scouts at the Great Wonderfest. I used to be a Cub and a Scout so I know how important it can be to learn about the great outdoors. Not only can they develop their Scouting skills, but they can also party at The Great Wonderfest – festival badges all round!”
‘Scoutfest’ will have the benefit of taking place within a family festival with music and entertainment on offer over four days, including Main Stage performances from pop stars Busted, The Vamps, Conor Maynard and retro acts such as The Blow Monkeys, Robin S and Musical Youth. All this plus big dance shows and workshops from Britain’s Got Talent stars Flawless and a Robots Live Arena featuring stars from BBC Robot Wars. With Dick and Dom hosting the main stage every day, as well as Peppa Pig & George’s Summer Festival and Rastamouse live, there really is something for kids all ages.
With ‘Scoutfest’ hosting their own festival within the heart of The Great Wonderfest, expect a lively programme of Scouting’s favourite activities, as well as a ‘Skills for Life’ programme focusing on helping Scouts develop into leaders, problem solvers and team players by giving them the character, employability and practical skills they need to succeed.
‘Scoutfest’ will host a full programme of activities; from badge work, daily challenges and outdoor pursuits, to big pioneering projects and fun stuff like Scout treasure hunts, pop-up tent packing competitions and hiking.
The Scouts will also host campfire sessions and campsite sing-alongs with special guests on the Main Stage. The brilliant local IOW Scouts will also have a media team on site producing a daily broadsheet as well as providing a Sherpa service, helping festival goers carry their kit to the campsites.
