Additional Camping & Residential Guidance

This detailed guidance was created by volunteers in Cambridge District to support volunteers organising camps and residentials. These overviews of roles and responsibilties on camp may provide a helpful starting point for your own camping or hostel trips.

This guidance should be read on conjunction with the policy and practice documents available on our Safeguarding Portal, especially the Code of Conduct for volunteers and the Camp Checklist.
