Welcome to the youth page of the Yorkshire Region website.
First of all let us introduce ourselves, we are the Yorkshire Region Youth Liaison Officers, or R.Y.L.O.’s for short, Jill and John Hawtin.
We have been youth leaders for over twelve years and once were youth members ourselves (a long time ago though) and both our children came through the youth section.
We are supported by a dedicated and enthusiastic team of youth leaders at many of the District Associations and sections in our Region, which is one of the largest and most vibrant in the club.
Listed in dates for your diary (just click on the link) are the regions planned activities for 2013, but all District Associations with youth leaders will also have their own programme of events. The Camping Club Youth section or C.C.Y. for short aims to promote enjoyment of camping by providing a positive and fun experience, to camp apart from your parents in an area dedicated to the youth section, where C.R.B. checked youth leaders, whilst not being “baby sitters”, will give their time to set in place some activities for you.
They will give training to help you to develop the skills which will lead towards the taking of the C.C.Y. camping test, which once passed allows you to camp unsupervised on club sites and also to continue in the youth section after you are 18 up to the age of 21.
With the C.C.Y. you will have the chance to travel, not just around Great Britain, but Europe as well, with regional, national and international youth rallies taking place each year.
So why not take some time here to browse some of the events and activities from our past then come and join us and become part of our future.
We invite you to join us at any event listed in dates for your diary provided that you are aged 12 to 17 or 21 if you have passed your camping club youth test before your 18 th birthday and you have a valid membership card.
If you require a membership application form just click on the link below or email John and send us message. The membership is now FREE to 12 - 17 year olds.
We hope to see you in the field soon.
Jill & John
