Grab your camera

While we continue to follow official guidance by keeping apart from weekly meetings, we have come up with a daily photo challenge.

Each day the Explorers will be given a new word, If they send in a photo relating to the word and is the best photo sent in that day, they win a small prize! The Explorer with the most best photos at the end of month wins a bigger prize. - So get snapping!
