Hello there! If you are new here, you might want to subscribe to the RSS feed for updates on this topic.

I remembered during my Venture days, we wanted to build an elevated camping site during Group Camp. Due to the “massive” idea plus the lack of time, we shelved that idea. Now as I was surfing this site called Pioneering Made Easy, I realised we were not the only crazy people thinking of this idea. In fact, they have conceptualized a down-sized version of our initial idea.

Camping Platform

In the 1970s there were a large number of Groups taking up a challenge by John Sweet to build multi-storey camping platforms. This is a basic design which could be adapted and extended to suit the available materials.
