Camping

Gwen Walwyn, our Lions Area Camping Adviser, is here to help make sure that you can go camping, and is available to help you through the maze of paperwork and skills to get you there!

Along with this introductory list of resources and campsites in Lions Area and surrounds, Lions Area offers camping trainings, Camp Skills days and lots of people who can help. Our awesome camping Trainers, Claire Lakes and Tamsin Guppy, are available to visit your meeting or camp and teach you some excellent camp skills. Several Lions Area leaders are working on Adventure OAL Trip Assist or Trip Lead designations to enable more girls to experience Adventure Camping activities. Contact us and we’ll put you in touch!

Have fun with your girls, enjoying the great game of Guiding outdoors!
