We put badge designs to a public vote (Scout Leaders Facebook Group) and two designs (Ewan Q & Miles M) had the same amount of votes. John Kerley our Deputy District Commissioner chose Ewan's design as the winner, Congratulations! (The design has been digitally recreated for badge production)
Isaac H and Drew M were close runners up but all designs were great - you can view all the designs at the bottom of this page.

ZOOM : NORTH DORSET DISTRICT SCOUT ST GEORGE'S CELEBRATION

Please wear uniform &/or neckers if possible
On a regular group camp, leaders carry out a full risk assessment and go to a lot of trouble to make sure everyone has as much fun as safely as possible. Obviously, we won’t be there with you for this camp, so this activity will run as a family camp, with parents and young people taking responsibility for their own safety. Please check everything to make sure it’s safe. Most accidents on camp involve cooking, campfires and guy lines – so take particular care with food safety/hygiene, hot fires and pans, and pitch your guy lines out of the way so you don’t trip over them. Have fun and don’t forget to send us your photos so we can see how you get on!
