Don’t worry you don’t need to choose right now, but we’re sharing the lists so you can whet your appetite and have a think over Christmas what you might like to take part in.


So, you want me to spend two whole days on Zoom? 🤢

No, well not unless you want to!

Register to attend and in soon we’ll contact you to book your sessions. You can choose to go to as many or few as you want.

There will also be a load of pre-recorded material released over the weekend that you can watch as and when you fancy.

You’ll then have your personal programme that you can fit round work, keep fit, Tescos or whatever you fill your weekends with.


How much does it cost?

Norfolk Scouts are highly subsidising this event. To help with costs there is a fee of £10 per household.


What do I do next?

Use this online form to register your place and for everyone else in your household and arrange to pay your registration fee.

Then take a cup of tea (or a glass of wine – well it is lockdown!) and start looking into what sessions you think you fancy going to.


After you’ve registered we’ll be in touch soon, and will post your participant pack to you by mid- February.

Keep an eye of the as our event website builds out.
