Explore the great outdoors with Camping Club Youth
We know that, as parents, you want your child to explore and develop, and that’s what Camping Club Youth was set up to do.
Designed for 12-17 year olds, Camping Club Youth (also called CCY or Youth) is The Camping and Caravanning Club’s group for young people.
Through CCY, young people learn to build their confidence and develop important skills for adult life. Become proficient in activities like planning trips and projects, taking responsibility, looking out for others, cooking and first aid. Enjoy experiences that will help them develop into well-rounded individuals.
Getting involved in CCY can make a difference to college and job applications, too. It shows a willingness to seize opportunities, be adventurous and generally get stuck in with hard work.
Plus, our Youth members tell us all the time - it really is great fun! See what they have to say here.
- Have fun - compete in team games, challenges and outdoor activities
- Freedom - your tent, your friends, your cooking
- Friends - meet loads of new people, who like the same things as you
- Adventure - camp abroad at our international events
- Independence - pick up life skills that will help you on the way to adult life
There's an opportunity each year for your child to be recognised for his or her camping achievements at a Regional and National level - they could receive up to £300 in outdoor retail vouchers!
The winner of the 2018 National Certificate of Achievement is Jessica Spurling. A prominent member of the South West Region Youth, Jessica was nominated for her assistance with the organisation of the National Youth Rally, including using social media to promote the event. Her commitment to the netball team and fundraising for the youth section was also praised. Jessica is currently working towards her Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award. Congratulations and well done, Jessica!
The two runners up this year are Adam Smiles of Eastern Region and Ross More of Northern Ireland. Well done both!
