Patrol Activity Camps

Scouts get to do the coolest things in the coolest places. And they even get to receive awards for their efforts!

We have some regular camping programs that make it achievable for many of our members. Scouts spend the weekend away working in Project Patrols on a range of activities – everything from cooking to welding.

PROJECT Patrol Activity Camping

Scouts can attend a Project Patrol Activity weekend at campsites like Gilwell Park, Clifford Park or Treetops.

At Gilwell Park, Scouts only need to come with their food, personal items and their completed health form. All the camping equipment is provided.

Activities at Gilwell might include, abseiling and bushcraft, welding, environment, orienteering or communications.

Clifford Park and Treetops require each Patrol to bring all their own camping equipment, food, personal equipment and completed health forms.

Gilwell Park 

Patrol Camping Gilwell Park offers nine fun activity camps, they include:

  • Abseiling – activities include abseiling, hay box cooking and mapping
  • Two Tradesman Camps – metal shaping, welding, using a forge, and electronics
  • Two Environment Camps – The April camp has activities supporting the World Scout Environment Badge and the November Camp has activities supporting the Pioneer and Explorer Environment Target Badge requirements
  • Two Rogaine Camps – how to use a compass and orienteering and Rogaine courses – come and break the records set
  • Communication Camp – with activities supporting the Communications Badge for Scouts
  • JOTA – includes fourteen activity bases and a night fair
