Adventures for fist time campers and younger guests

At Kingswood Camps, our visitors are put into groups of similar ages, meaning siblings of different ages can meet new friends during the day, but have the reassurance of seeing a familiar face from time to time at meal times and during certain activities.

Whichever location, activity or excursion your child has chosen, we want to ensure that our young visitors are always having fun and are confident to try new challenges. That’s why each camps is split into different age groups; it allows us to tailor our activities to the perfect level for each group.

Each group has a dedicated camp coach, who acts like a big brother or sister to provide friendly support, gentle encouragement, safe supervision and a fair few laughs. It’s all part of ensuring everyone has as much fun as possible with their new friends, backed up by great support from someone who’s looking out for them.

8-10 year olds

Our summer camps allow young adventurers to spread their wings, make new friends and discover new skills in our ‘home away from home’ atmosphere. The camp coaches who look after our guests are particularly skilled at making sure this age group are having as much fun as possible, whilst feeling looked after, particularly if it’s their first trip away from home.

11-15 year olds

We give young people and early teens the opportunity to embrace every aspect of camp life, from sharing dorms to scaling climbing towers, developing valuable life skills and building self-esteem, whilst making new friends from over 75 countries around the world. Our team gently encourage them to push their boundaries and try exciting new adventures.

Although we arrange rooming based on age group, it may be possible to arrange for siblings of the same gender to share a room on request  (this cannot be guaranteed). Please note that it is not possible for brothers and sisters to share a room as all accommodation is split by gender.

In our canteen, we serve three hot meals per day, with lots of choice and seasonal variations. Each day there is a carefully balanced and nutritional meal plan. We can accommodate most special dietary needs, please let us know requirements at the time of booking.
