Due to popular demand, The Great Wonderfest has now invited Girlguiding to partner with them for ‘Scoutfest’ to create the best Scouts and Guides camp ever; where Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Rainbows, Brownies and Guides from all over the UK all go free*.
‘Scoutfest’ will have a dedicated campsite at The Great Wonderfest, based at Duxmore Farm, offering a brilliant environment for camping, rambling and other exciting outdoor activities.
The inaugural event takes place between 1st-4th August 2019 with camping available from 29th July.
Malcolm Cox, Scoutfest coordinator, says:
“Every Scout has 40 million friends throughout the world. If we add the Girl Guides too we’ve got 50 million friends globally – that includes 3,000 on the Isle of Wight and over 1 million in the UK!
“We’re working on a range of amazing activities which we’ll be telling you about soon, so watch this space! We’ll also be announcing an amazing competition where one lucky Beaver, Cub, Scout, Rainbow Brownie or Guide can win family tickets for themselves and their friends”.
Dick, from festival hosts Dick and Dom, says:
“It’ll be great to have the Scouts and Guides family 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!”
