About this event
Join us for a practical day covering a wide range of guiding outdoor and camping skills!

This is for you if you’re planning to take girls camping or just away from the meeting place to enjoy the outdoors this summer/autumn and would like to learn some new skills, or just brush up on your existing ones/get some new ideas!

This day is open to everyone in your unit team – leaders, unit helpers, young leaders and is also open to Rangers.

Here’s what we’ll cover:

  • Planning your campsite layout and things to think about when risk assessing camps.
  • Tent pitching and care, pitch and evaluate different types of tents. We will have a couple of different tents/shelters on hand to pitch, but if you have a tent that you’d like to bring along to pitch please do bring it!
  • Cooking outdoors: test out and evaluate different types of equipment (trangias, wood and gas) and cook your own lunch
  • Campfire fun
  • Traditional skills, whistles, knots and lashings, flag ceremony etc)
  • Map skills and games
