Why does The Summer Camps Trust exist?
Everyone behind the Summer Camps Trust works unpaid. They do it because they strongly believe that a proper system of well-run residential summer camps would help make British children happier and more fulfilled.
They believe this from having seen many thousands of children, from all backgrounds and all kinds of schools, thrive, grow, find new friends and rediscover some “real childhood” in the relaxed and happy community of a good summer camp.
Our 2019 Camps
In August 2019 the Summer Camps Trust will, with the help of some excellent providers, be promoting a series of Try Out Summer Camps for British children aged 9 to 15, costing only £245 for a seven-day residential holiday including accompanied travel. These Try Out Summer Camps are particularly aimed at children who have never yet tried a residential summer camp.
For full details please see our brochure.

We are running two sessions of Try Out Summer Camps for 2019.
