Camping Leader Training (Online)

Learn to supervise camping groups, teach campcraft activities and develop camping proficiency, with this nationally recognised Camping Leader training course. Developed by renowned awarding body Mountain Training, this online training resource is an optional but recommended first step before completing the Camping Leader Assessment: a one-day course delivered by RAW Adventures.

The online Camping Leader training course covers all aspects of the Camping Leader syllabus, with engaging presentations, videos, and quizzes to facilitate learning. If you engage with all sections of the course, it should take around 4 hours to complete. You’re welcome to revisit the online training course as many times as you'd like before your assessment course.

Who’s it for?

Camping Leader training is designed for anyone who wants to confidently lead camping groups and teach campcraft activities in a wild camping or commercial camping setting. It’s ideal for those involved in Duke of Edinburgh, President’s Award and/or Ten Tors training, Scout leader and teachers.
