Save the Children are looking for your help in promoting Save the Children’s Den Day to your Scout Groups. Den Day is an amazing and fun way for youth groups to raise money that will transform lives!

Join youth groups across the UK for Den Day on Friday 16 June. It’s really easy to take part: build dens together using everyday items like cardboard boxes, rope, sticks and blankets to raise money to help give more children around the world a safe place to shelter.

Den Day is a fun, creative campaign which helps children understand the importance of shelter for families across the world as they build their own. Sign up for your free fundraising kit now. Den Day is also a fantastic opportunity to earn activity badge(s) for your group.

We have received positive feedback from Scout leaders who feel Den Day could be an opportunity to help their young people get new badges. An example of badges Den Day could help your young people earn includes:

– Global Issues Activity, Creative Activity, and Camp Crafty Activity badges for Beavers
– DIY Activity, Hobbies Activity, and Pioneer Activity Badges for Cubs
– Fundraising Activity, Camper Activity, and Pioneer Activity badges for Scouts

And the best bit – The money they raise will make life better for children in some of the world’s toughest countries.

It doesn’t take much to make a BIG difference:

£66 could buy ten sheets of tarpaulin to help provide shelter to families who have lost their homes in an emergency.

£150 could provide everything needed to run two reading clubs to help children in Rwanda learn literacy skills for a year.

The more you raise the more lives we’ll be able to transform.

Your fundraising kit will make planning the day simple, with plenty of shelter ideas, tips to raise lots of money and useful teaching resources to help plan a learning adventure that’s as much fun for Scouts leaders as it is for children. Children of all ages can take part in Den Day, and the campaign contributes too many areas of personal development, as well as encouraging creativity and teamwork.
