The PATROLS IN ACTION series of Camps ONE to FIVE took place on our National Scout Centres in July each year. The camps were run by a core team of Venture Scouts and Rover Scouts together with Adult Scouters in a supporting capacity working together to provide an experience for patrols who were looking to improve their camp skills, who were seeking an experience in working independently as a patrol without the benefit of scouters and their troop as a whole around them. Their Scouters didn’t camp with them.
The largest youth gathering in Ireland was held in Waterford as 850 Scouts come together to take part in the annual Phoenix Challenge. From Thursday August 14th to Sunday August 17th 2014 the weekend of scouting challenges took place in two locations: Mount Melleray National Scout Centre near Cappoquin and in Waterford City.
