“He made friends immediately and tried and loved every activity. The first thing he said on his return was ‘can I go next year?’ A huge success.”
It’s feedback like this, from the parents of one of our recent Summer Camps participants, that underlines exactly what we aim to achieve with our annual getaways. Our six-day all-inclusive Summer Camps, across five locations, give young people the chance to grow in confidence and broaden their horizons: to meet new people, engage in outdoor adventure and strengthen their sense of independence. There are three types of camps aimed at three different age groups between 10 and 19 years old – Go eXtreme, Future Leader and Action Adventure – and our Breaks for Kids bursary helps fund discounts of up to 75% for kids from low-income households. Members also get a 15% discount.
