What is the objective of this event?
We believe that the joys of adventurous activities shouldn’t be limited. The aim of the Chameleon Camp is to give all young people an opportunity to succeed and share their experiences in an outdoor environment alongside members of their peer group, friends and siblings, just as they will when they become adults. This event is specifically designed for campers with special needs who can benefit from a total inclusion experience.
This event is open to all Scout aged young people aged 6 to 18 years. All participants may also bring a friend or sibling to share the experience with them who also do not need to be within the Scout movement.
The price and final details are yet to be confirmed for this event.
