How would you like to go away to camp just as a Patrol? Would you enjoy being responsible for planning and running the camp? Could you organise the details, from food and transport to equipment and activities? If so, the Guide Camp Permit could be for you!
To start working on your Camp Permit, you need to have gained your Camper Advanced badge and be at least 12 years old. If you are 12, you can lead a Patrol camp alongside your unit camp. When you are 13 you can run a Patrol camp without your unit.
You'll find more information about the Camp Permit in your G file, along with space to get the modules signed off as you complete them. There are also some useful tips about badges online.
