We believe summer camps can transform children's lives
The Summer Camps Trust highlights the benefits that summer camps can have for young people and raises the profile of well-run residential summer camps in Britain so that more young people may benefit from these remarkable opportunities.
Summer camps are residential breaks held in outdoor centres or sometimes under canvas where 8-19 yr olds from all over the UK and beyond can meet up for a week or so and have a great holiday together.
Only 2% of the UK’s children currently take part in Summer Camps every year, approximately 225,000. We aim to double that by 2022, and have one million children participating in summer camps by 2030.
