The Camping Leader qualification is for people who wish to supervise a camping group and develop participants’ camping proficiency by teaching campcraft activities.
A qualified Camping Leader can operate in a variety of campsites, all with vehicle access, including land with no facilities and commercial campsites offering a range of facilities. A qualified Camping Leader who also holds a Mountain Training walking leadership qualification can operate in terrain within the scope of that scheme i.e. journey and wild camp.
The Camping Leader scheme is ideal for those involved with the Duke of Edinburgh's Award, President’s Award and/or Ten Tors training among other things. The skills covered apply to groups using commercial campsites as well as wild camping.
