Camp Visitors

Cambridge District Scout Archive

Visitors fall into three main categories; the formal visit and inspection of senior Scouters, particularly when camping out of District, the host who has provided the campsite and families when the camp is more than a weekend, but not too far away.

The photograph below suggests an organised coach for families.

To this we may add old friends or leaders who have relocated to the area, neighboring campers and occasionally local children temporarily affiliated to the pack or troop.
