The Duchess of Cambridge will be in the Lake District next week.

She is due to visit the Great Tower Scout Camp as a volunteer in the Scout Association. She will be joined by other adult volunteers and will train to work with Beaver and Cub Scouts.

During her visit, she will use her training to help look after a group of 24 Cub Scouts from Cumbria and Manchester.

The Cub Scouts will be taking part in a pack holiday event, which will involve tree-climbing, outdoor cooking and fire-lighting under the guidance of Kate and other volunteers.

The Duchess, who is five months pregnant, will travel to the 250-acre Scout activity centre set close to Lake Windermere in the Lake District National Park next Friday, 22nd March.
