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.

Well winter is here so we are using the cold winter nights to plan for next summer!
We have held our planning meeting where we looked at the feedback from the children and the volunteers and we already have some exciting ideas for next year including a revamped menu and final afternoon.

We will be running 6 camps as normal and the dates for the children are:-

Camp 1 Mon 25 – Thurs 28 July

Camp 2 Fri 29 July – Mon 1 Aug

Camp 3 Weds 3 – Sat 6 Aug

Camp 4 Sun 7 – Weds 10 Aug

Camp 5 Fri 12 – Mon 15 Aug

Camp 6 Tues 16 – Fri 19 Aug

Bookings will open in late March so keep an eye on the website, facebook and twitter for when we open. Until then keep safe and well. See you in the 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. www.easyfundraising.org.uk
