Other information
Why patrol camp? - Information for parents and carers

A patrol camp is organised and attended by the patrol. It gives Scouts and Patrol Leaders the opportunity to develop skills, and above all, to be responsible for the planning, budgeting and organising all aspects of the camp under the guidance of the Scout Leaders. It's a chance to give scouts a degree of carefully managed independence outdoors. 

Indeed, skills are developed in Scouts that would be impossible to notice in other young people until they begin their working lives. I would encourage you to take an interest in the planning for camp and not to undervalue the skills your son/daughter is keen to demonstrate.

Patrol Camps are always held at ‘official’ Scout campsites, in this case, Moor House. These sites have a full-time warden who lives on site. In addition, our adult team will be camping nearby should scouts need support. 

If patrols have planned activities on the site, then these are professionally led and hence attract an additional fee to make use of them.

Before the Patrol Camp takes place, patrols have worked with adults to prepare a written programme (including times and costs), a menu, a budget and have consent through our booking system. 

When talking to older Scouts, it is always the patrol-camp and not the troop camp which is most prominent in their memory. We hope you will allow and trust your son or daughter to attend a Patrol Camp during this season. Be assured that both the experience and fun of camping will lead to a ‘great time’ being had by all.
