CCJ Info

Are you aged between 8 years and 11 years old?
Camping Club Juniors (CCJ) have official recognation at National level within The Camping and Caravanning Club.
When formed they will fall under Regional and DA Section control.
The formation of such a section is not mandatory but is to be encouraged as a means of fostering interest in camping at an early age.
The divergence of pratices between Regions and DA Sections, which has developed over recent years, has given rise to the need for guidlines to be issued to that Junior Youth Sections, when formed, develop along common lines.
CCJ should be a natural stepping stone for progression into the CCY..


Junior Youth Test

The CCJ Test should be an elementary test of very basic skills and should be seen as a method of encouraging progress and fostering enthusiasm as its main aim.

Training


Training should be given in the basic skills of camping. The skills and basic first aid taught should be elementary and practical, and the instruction given by demonstration-and above all fun.
The training of the CCJ members should be used upon the modules of the CCY Fundamentals of Good Camping, and confined to tent pitching, the code for campers,rubbish disposal, packing of kit and elementary first aid.
CCJ members should not be expected to pitch their tent unaided and enlisting the help of a parent or adult is perfectly in order, of which more information can be obtained via your CCJ leaders or CCY leaders.
