Details of the Youth Test

The aim of the National Youth Test is for the youth member to demonstrate that he/she is able to camp unsupervised.

The syllabus for the test is based on the latest edition of the Fundamentals of Good Camping, which CCY members receive on joining.

Candidates should have spent the equivalent of 6 weekends camping with a Youth Leader before taking the test

The candidate may move to the site by any means, but should arrive at the test site fully equipped and carrying all the equipment on their person or personal transportation. For example, if the parent has transported the CCY to the site by car, the candidate should walk on to the field from the gate, as if they had travelled the full distance in that manner
