What is CCY ?
Each DA has a youth section where children aged between 12-18 can join there DA’s youth for free. Although every youth member who wants to carry on camping in the CCY must complete their youth test before their 18th birthday. (Read below for more details). Being a youth member has many benefits, so make sure you sign up today!
You also have the opportunity to take your youth test before your 18th birthday and if you pass, it allows you to continue with the privileges of a Youth member until you are 21.Including a reduced membership fee until you are 30 and the entitlement to attend the international youth rally each year.
The Youth test comprises of camping skills such as pitching & erecting a tent, the use of stoves, map reading, first aid etc. You can find more information on this by going to the Youth Test page on the menu.
Central Counties organise two Youth Rallies, one in the winter and one in the summer. At each meet there are sports and trophies to be won.
