The Scout Radio Team had a fantastic time at Big Camp 2015, we are glad we were invited along and had the opportunity to meet thousands of young people from all over West Yorkshire and further afield as they took part in hundreds of activities. Including presenting their own show with scout radio.
We had the chance to interview lots of young people about their experiences and what they got up to at the event, and we hope to be back at the next Big Camp!
Listen back here to everything we recorded over the event.
