Its Monday , so that means it’s time for another week of Campfire Chat. I love this section and it’s so nice getting to know Scout Volunteers from around the world.

If you haven’t joined in with Campfire Chat before it’s a weekly online interview celebrating Scouting. From Leaders, to County Commissioners to volunteers the other side of the world, every Monday we share a few minutes to discuss Scouts!

So, if you would like to take part in next week’s Campfire Chat, drop me an email.
