The Camp is open to children aged 9 to 12 years inclusive and is run by an experienced voluntary organisation; staffed by volunteers who have a wide range of experience in schools, university, and the wider world of work. We also offer a number of subsidised places for children from low income families.

We had a great summer with children from Kirklees and all of our places were full. For once the weather was reasonably kind, if not too hot at times. It was the first time we had a waterslide at 9.30am and a cancelled camp fire because of the heat! We played lots of games and introduced the Masked singer and a photo booth to our last night entertainment which was great fun. We now start our planning for next year and we will be opening our bookings for volunteers in late January, and for children in late March. We will send a reminder email later in the year with the dates so you can start to plan. In the meantime have a great start to the school term and think of camp and all your camp friends on the cold dark evenings.


See you next summer!

Every child’s place at summer camp is subsidised as we know that all families struggle with the cost of childcare and activities in the summer. We need to raise around £3000 per year to keep our cost as low as possible and invest in new kit and play equipment each year. Please help us by fundraising in any way you can.


You can also help us by shopping online through easyfundraising and naming us as your charity – Kirklees Summer Playscheme Camp. It adds 2 clicks to your shop but raises money for us each time. It has all the big retailers and online shops on the website.
