Vango recognise the importance of encouraging young people to participate in camping and outdoor activities. Being active in the outdoors offers many benefits including improved health and fitness, self-esteem and personal development. For this reason, and the obvious mutual benefits, we have teamed up with The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award and The Scout Association.
For nearly 60 years the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award has been inspiring, guiding and supporting young people in their self-development and recognising their achievements. Completing an expedition is integral to achieving the Award. Vango and the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award conduct extensive field-testing to ensure that our D of E recommended kit list is performance led, easy to use and fit for purpose.
Founded in 1907 by Robert Baden Powell, The Scout Association helps children and young adults to reach their full potential, each year providing activities and camping opportunities to 435,000 children and young adults throughout the UK. The Scout Association have selected a range of Vango kit to meet the wide variety of Outdoor activity they take part in. Group quartermasters have been issued with a recommended kit guide that include trekking and group camping gear. There is also an official nights outdoors kit list for parents to use when preparing for camp.
As the world's oldest and largest club for all forms of camping, and with over 500,000 members, the camping and caravanning club has been catering to the needs of outdoor enthusiasts for over 100 years. The facilities and services on all sites are developed and managed by people who share a love of camping and caravanning. We have been working with the camping and caravanning club for many years, to ensure that the vast majority of our tents & awnings are perfect for club pitch sites (9m x 5m).
