Camping has always been an important part of Scouting. It is both an
enjoyable experience (in all weathers!) and a learning experience in one.
For those in the scout movement it allows them to bring a variety of
things they have been taught into practice.
In addition the campers are also learning other important 'life' skills
such as hygiene, self discipline, responsibility and such like. There are
a variety of things to learn to enable your time at camp to go smoothly,
from being able to erect the tents to starting a fire for a cup of
hard-earned tea there are many things that scouts and scouters pick up
over the years.
