Scouts join forces with Vango

Scouts new adventure with Vango

Outdoor brand and youth organisation collaborate on kit

Scotland-based camping and outdoor business AMG, which owns Vango, has teamed up with the Scout Association to become the official supplier of “recommended kit”.

The range of equipment that will appear on the Scouts’ outdoors adventure lists will include tents, sleeping bags, rucksacks, footwear, stove systems, fuels and food from AMG’s portfolio of brands, such as Vango, Wayfayrer, Trangia and Fuel4.

The aim is to select items that match the needs of all age groups from the youngest members of the Scout movement, the Beavers, to Scout leaders.

The Scouts are the UK’s largest mixed youth organisation committed to providing life-changing adventures for young people aged six to 25.

Selected equipment will carry the “recommended by Scouts” logo and will feature on all equipment lists supplied by the Scout Association to its members.

Derek Scott, AMG’s marketing director, said: “I’m really pleased to announce this partnership between Vango and the Scouts. The Scout movement has been in existence for over 100 years, and is synonymous with outdoor activities, so it fits very well with Vango’s brand values.

“It’s great to be involved with an organisation that encourages young people to get outdoors and enjoy camping.

“It can be hard to know exactly what kit to invest in when you’re first starting out, which is why this partnership is so beneficial to make sure all Scouts are using the best possible products when enjoying the great outdoors.”
