About the Camp 

Aims and Objectives

The Summer Camp Programme has two aims:

The participants are also provided with the opportunity and are encouraged to progress through the section Award Scheme.

Summer Camp can be a unique opportunity for Leaders as it provides practical training and a chance to get to know and understand more closely the Scouts in their care. Baden-Powell said of his vision of a week long summer camp:

‘The camp is what the youth look forward to and is the Leader’s great opportunity’.

The concept is particularly aimed at assisting those Groups who would normally not be able to provide a 5 or 6 day camping experience for their members, either because of insufficient Leaders, or because the Leaders consider themselves inexperienced in the skills of camping.  In other words the Camp aims to assist Leaders to give the youth a Summer Camp.
