10TH 12TH JULY 2020 -BRAMHAM PARk
Bramham Park, Friday 10th- Sunday 12th July 2020.
This is Central Yorkshire Scout Event for Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorers, Network, Active Support and others. Taking place in the grounds of Bramham Park, outside Leeds, the weekend camp offers a variety of activities for all whilst embodying the traditional values of Scouting.
Favourite biscuit: McVitie’s Fruit Shortcake soaked in black coffee.
My role as the C20 Lead for infrastructure is the, planning, facilitation, liaison and delivery of:
Camp layouts, build, operation, strike, traffic management, security, fire, water, power, plant, waste, and of course toilets.
New for C20 we will have individual Infrastructure Leads for the Camp Village and the Activity & Entertainment Area, ensuring the best possible liaisons and delivery.
Personally I’m looking forward to C20 being the biggest and the best County Camp experience for all.
If you have any Infrastructure queries or you want to volunteer to be part of the Infrastructure Team, please don’t be shy in getting in touch.
My role as the Ch20 Lead for administration is to ensure that the information is sent out regarding what’s happening and that booking forms are sent along with consent and medical forms. Then ensuring that all are received and organised so that during the event all information is available should it be needed and that GDPR is followed at all times. Other responsibilities are:
Running of the friendly and welcoming admin tent where you can replace lost wrist bands, find your lost property, put a comment in our “you said” comment box plus more ….
Having been part of an amazing team at district level for 2 years now I am personally looking forward to working with the rest of my admin team as well as the other camp leads and their teams to ensure Ch20 is the best yet.
If you have any admin queries or you want to volunteer to be part of the admin Team, please don’t hesitate in getting in touch.
Oh, my favourite biscuit: Got to be a bourbon after being dunked in a hot cup of tea
My role at Challenge20 is Camp Leader. I have overall responsibility for the planning and delivery of Central Yorkshire Scouts’ biggest and best event ever!
I can’t wait to be in the middle of such an incredible atmosphere created by over 5000 young people and adults from Leeds and Wakefield at our fantastic festival for young people.
My favourite biscuit is anything with plenty of chocolate on it!
Feel free to ask me about anything to do with Challenge20. I can always point you in the right direction and am always keen to hear your thoughts and ideas about how we can ensure this is Central Yorkshire Scouts’ best event yet.
Legacy and Hospitality
That’s a hard one... probably a bourbon. However, if you want to get on my good side it’s giant chocolate buttons every time!
Retail & County Youth Commissioner
As County Youth Commissioner my role is to ensure that every Young Person attending has the opportunity to influence the event we deliver. This may be through visits to sections, running forums or working with our Youth Board. I facilitate Young People holding the Management Team to account on the actions they committed to ensure the event is as Youth Shaped as possible!
As Retail Lead I manage and facilitate the Retail and Merchandising Provision across the event. This involves clothing, memorabilia, snacks, drinks and plenty more! Exciting additions this year include the splitting of provision across multiple outlets, as well as expanding our food ordering/delivery service. Retail not only helps generate income to keep costs down, but is consistently requested from our Young People.
Drop me an email to chat about all things Youth Shaped, Retail, or Both!
Favourite Biscuit: Easy. Chocolate Hobnob.
Media and Communications
My role at Challenge20 is to promote the event before, during and after with a logo and promotional material whilst encapsulating the Scout brand and identity. During the event I will be managing a team which consists of photographers, video makers and social media guru’s who will work together to show Challenge20 on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, the website and wider local media. I will also be helping other C20 Leads throughout the weekend.
I’m not sure what I am most excited about: seeing all the young people having an amazing time across the weekend, or the looks on their faces when they see the Friday night activities for the first time Or camping at Bramham Park which is a particularly special place for me with family connections.
Ask me about anything to do with media- how to get involved, what we do, how we set up the infrastructure, what equipment we use, anything media related. I cannot promise to have all the answers but I will know someone in my area who will.
Favourite biscuit? Partial to a fig roll. And second place is the chocolate digestive- you cannot beat the Scouting classic, a smore!
My role at Challenge 20 is as the Project Manager for the event, making sure we have a plan to get us to July next year and that we are delivering against it a great event for all our young people across the County. I hold all the members of the Management team to account to make sure they deliver what they have said they will deliver.
C20 Lead- Staff Services
As lead for Staff Services my job is to ensure we have enough leaders in place to set up and take down the campsite, run activities and keep the camp running day and night safely as well as ensure the site team are fed and watered. Prior to the camp I’ll be seeking volunteers to fill rotas and during camp I’ll be running around to make sure people are where they’re needed.
I’m really looking forward to seeing a whole load of Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorers and even visitors from Girl Guides all buzzing on the Saturday, boasting about what they’ve done, forming new friendships or trying some new activity (and never, ever, ever going to sleep for all the chatting about it).
I hope this year somebody will organise a healthy supply of my favourite biscuit which although I’m not normally too precious about these things I do get extremely territorial over a chocolate covered malted milk
I’m happy to take any questions. I might even be able to answer some of them, probably more likely the ones from leaders about who’s covering their tea break, who’s running the this or that activity, why isn’t there anyone telling me where to park etc. However, under no circumstances will I take any questions over the location of any supposed sightings of chocolate covered malted milk biscuits.
As Activities Team Lead my task is to make sure there is something for everyone on the activity field; quiet to noisy, serene to adrenaline, wet to dry, team to individual, physical to mental…..
I am most excited about seeing thousands of happy people enjoying things they have done before and trying things they have not done before.
Feel free to ask me about: Activity Zones – Adventure, R&R, International, Brownsea Island, GDV, Creative….. what do you want to do?
My favourite biscuits...Is a Jaffa Cake a biscuit – depends on who you ask……
Entertainments and Ceremonies
My role is heading up the Entertainments and Ceremonies team. We are responsible for providing entertainment from the moment the young people set foot on site to the closing ceremony at the end of what promises to be an amazing weekend. We have plans for stage shows, music, dancing, showcasing the county’s talent and hope to provide lots of lively fun for all ages.
I am most looking forward to the anticipation and excitement as the first young people arrive on site.
My favourite biscuit is a milk chocolate Hobnob though Lidl do a just as nice cheaper option!
As the programme is revealed over the coming months I am happy to answer any questions that may arise but some things we want to keep under wraps until the event!
We are looking for lots of people to help run Challenge20- and there is a role to suit everybody. You could be a plumber, a archery instructor, a first aider or a 7.5 tonne lorry driver – there is a role for you.
More information is coming soon with a bespoke booking system and job roles to show you what we are looking for but also how much fun you will have.
In the meantime, the planning team are wanting volunteers to join the sub-teams. Click here to register your interest.
