children on a climbing wall

Every year we invite some of our service users to come along to our 2-day residential camp, it's a chance for 7-16 year olds to come together and work through difficult feelings or emotions, which they may be holding onto. 

The children are supported by a team of staff and volunteers.

Over the two days the children and young people engage in adventurous activities such as climbing, archery and bushcraft to help build confidence, self-esteem and encourage teamwork.

Creative and therapeutic workshops also take place and provide an  opportunity for participants to share their stories and to untangle and express a range of feelings.

It can be challenging and fun and offers the opportunity for children and young people to meet others their age who have been through similar experiences.

Parents and Carers of those at the residential attended last 2 hours of day two for feedback and the closing ceremony.
