Our camps have been developed to be active, nurturing, fun and creative. They provide adventure and create a memorable and meaningful experience.

The camps are residential for two nights and have a balance of structured outdoor activities alongside quieter more therapeutic and reflective activities. They have received fantastic feedback from adopted young people and their parents alike. The camps are for the young people alone and are fully staffed with trained and knowledgeable workers on a minimum ratio of one staff member to two children. Some of our parents have even taken the opportunity to enjoy a short break nearby while the children are at camp – with the assurance that the children are safe and secure nearby.


Our camps can help your child in many ways:

  • Improving family relationships
  • Reducing social isolation
  • Improved integration of adoption into wider sense of self
  • Increase skills building for adopted young people


What do you need to do:

  • Confirm your interest.
  • Families must get in touch with their local authority to have a worker designated to them to support them in this process.


To reserve a space on the camp we would need to receive the following:

  • A contact for a designated social worker that will be assisting you in the application process.
  • A completed referral form from your local authority.
  • Confirmation that your local authority is able to apply to the adoption support fund.
  • Confirmation of funding.


We are able to support you and your local authority with this process but need the contact of your social worker and local authority. Please note even once funding has been confirmed, places are not guaranteed until an assessment has been done and the camp is determined suitable for all young people referred.


Please note that we require referrals from your local authority to provisionally book your young person(s) on the residential camp. Places are subject to availability. To express your interest, call us on 0161 830 2027 or send email to
