Kirklees Summer Play Camp would like to invite pupils aged 9-12 to book onto one of the six camps that are taking place during the summer holidays. We are a local charity that supports young people from all backgrounds access a residential experience in the Yorkshire countryside.

For over 40 years, thousands of children from all over Kirklees, Wakefield and Barnsley have spent their time off from school camping, playing games, and making friends at one of the longest running summer camps in the UK. Children, aged 9-12, stay at Woolley Edge Scout Camp for 4 days and 3 nights with 6 camps available over the course of the school summer holidays.

This year children will be taking part in different activities, including group games in the wood, a waterslide and a pirate walk. Children also will have the opportunity to try archery, ride a go kart, make friendship bracelets and listen to stories from our scary pirates.

The cost of this experience is £61.06 and includes all meals and the use of a tent during the stay. We also have a number of assisted places each camp that are half price for pupils from more disadvantaged backgrounds (eligibility information on our website).

Camp 1: Mon 23rd -Thurs 26th July
