Are you aged between 12 and 17? Are you fed up of camping near your parents? Would you like to camp with like minded youth?
Then why not join the Camping Club Youth…
Each DA or section has a youth section where they organize weekends with your own dedicated camping area.
You also have the opportunity to take your youth test before your 18th birthday and if you pass, it allows you to continue with the privileges of a Youth member until you are 21.
An added bonus is if you continue to be a Camping & Caravanning Club member you get reduced membership fees until you are 30.
The Youth test comprises of camping skills such as pitching & erecting a tent, the use of stoves, map reading, first aid etc.
Central Counties organize two Youth Rallies, one in the winter and one in the summer.
At each meet there are sports and trophies to be won.
The winter meet sports are all indoors and usually consist of darts, dominos and pool. There is normally a trip to the local bowling alley during the Saturday afternoon, with a nice hot meal when you return.
The summer rally includes 5 aside football, volleyball, netball and fun sports.
You also have the opportunity to attend the National Youth Rally where you have the chance to make friends with youth members from other parts of the UK.
If you are 14 and have passed your Youth Test, you may like to attend the International Youth Rally – This is held over the Easter weekend and in 2010 it will be held in Rome.
