1886 – First Camp Of The Glasgow Company

During the Fair Holiday in July 1886, the 1st Glasgow Company held the first camp.

Designed to keep the Company in contact with its members during the summer months, the week away at Tighnabruaich on the Kyles of Bute saw Boys enjoy expeditions by boats, games, and rambling in the hills.

Camping became an important part of Boys’ Brigade activities, with all the major anniversaries being celebrated with a Camp, including the centenary of Camping, which was celebrated with a Camp in 1986 at Ayr, and included a trip to Tighnabruaich, and the unveiling of a cairn to mark the occasion.
