They shall grow not old as we that are left grow old,
Age shall not weary them nor the years condemn,
At the going down of the sun, and in the morning,
We will remember them. Lest We Forget
| CAMDEN R.S.L YOUTH CLUB|
Camden RSL Youth Club was formed on 28 October 1970 after Camden resident Albert Baker OAM aproached the RSL Club with the idea of them supplying equipment for the boxing group he was training in his back yard. The RSL agreed and Albert was elected foundation president. Ken Bond, George Bull and Bill Mundell helped with the formation of the club. The club was an immediate success with boxing, judo and table tennis being the first activities formed.
The existing RSL Youth Club Hall situated in Cawdor Road Camden was officially opened by The Honourable Peter Anderson MP, Ministor for Police, on 20 February 1983. Mayor of Camden, Alderman Graham Bush stated that all sections of the community had contributed generously to the establishment of the Hall.

The club offers coaching and mentoring in an open environment where safety procedures must be followed. Parents and carers are welcome to stay and watch their children learn and become more confident and self-assured.
