Youth Section

What the youth section is about.

The Youth Section is aimed at young people between the ages of 12-17. As a Youth Member, they will be eligible to train and undertake their Youth Test which involves choosing a suitable camp site, tent erection, cooking and maintaining a healthy balanced diet, map reading and using a compass for navigation, First Aid, packing kit and the Countryside Code.

Once passed, at the age of 14-21 the Youth member can camp unaccompanied on all Club Sites at Children's rates (upon production of a valid test certificate), attend International Youth Rallies and remain in the Youth Section until they are 21.

It will also entitle them to a discounted Senior Youth membership rate when they reach 21 which is available until they are 30.

There is also a Junior Section for the younger children between the ages of 8-11.
The Junior Section is aimed at giving the younger children the camping experience centering on basic camping skills like tent erection, cooking and First Aid. Juniors must however be under the guidance of their parents at all times.

All Youth Leaders, assistants and tester are all accredited by the Camping and Caravanning Club and have been vetted through the criminal records bureau. They must also carry Camping & Caravanning Club endorsed photo identification.
