Camping Leader

The Camping Leader qualification is for people who wish to supervise a camping group and develop participants’ camping proficiency by teaching campcraft activities. You can read more about the course and its pre-requisites on the Mountain Training Website.

We run our courses in the Brecon Beacons or on Gower, both beautiful places to train and assess the skills and knowledge required by a Camping Leader.

Anyone can do this, you don't need to already have any other qualifications or live in a tent. There is an online training package which we reccomend you do before joining us for a 1 day assessment where we'll look at lots of practical skills.

Prerequisits: 
  • Be over 18 and have a current first aid certificate.

  • Have logged 5 nights personal camping, plus 2 nights supervising a group.

We run the assessment over 1 day, coving all the areas of the Camping Leader syllabus:

  • LEADERSHIP AND GROUP MANAGEMENT

  • PLANNING AND SUPERVISION

  • TEACHING AND LEARNING SKILLS

  • CAMPING EQUIPMENT

  • CAMPING FOOD AND COOKING
