The Camping and Caravanning Club youth section is for 12 to 17 year olds. This is
also known as the CCY ( Camping Club Youth). This is run by duly appointed Youth
The aim of the CCY is to provide positive camping opportunities, experiences and
practical knowledge to young people in a structured, safe and fun environment
From the age of 12 the youth can pitch their tent in the CCY (Camping Club Youth)
area, under the leadership of our youth leaders. If you have a young person who would
like to join the Northern Ireland D.A youth please contact the youth leaders, There
is a CCY area allocated specifically for the youth on many of our meets. There are
Regional, National and International Youth meets, all geared up for the interests
of the young camper.
A test is carried out once the Northern Ireland DA youth leaders are satisfied
the youth are ready. Once passed successfully this allows the youth member to camp
on their own on any Camping and Caravanning Club site or meet should they so wish.
