After having a year off due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the play camp organisers are excited to welcome back children for a programme of fun and excitement.

The camp has been running for more than 40 years, giving thousands of children the opportunity to make memories, meet new friends and try new activities.

Children aged 9-12 can go to one of the six camps throughout July and August.

Each camp is four days and three nights, which is spent in tents.

As in previous years, the camps offer a variety of activities for participants, including the final night disco and campfire, waterslide and games in the woods.

Camp leaders Jane and Duncan said: “We were devastated that we had to cancel summer camp last year.

“We know that our children and families missed it so much and so did we.

“This year will be amazing – seeing old friends, making new ones and rediscovering all our games and activities, including a climbing wall on each camp.

“So, don’t miss out, book now and we will see you in the summer.”

The dates are: Camp 1 – Monday 26 to Thursday, July 29; Camp 2 – Friday 30 to Monday, August 2; Camp 3 – Wednesday 4 to Saturday, August 7; Camp 4 – Sunday 8 to Wednesday, August 11; Camp 5 – Friday 13 to Monday, August 16; Camp 6 – Tuesday 17 to Friday, August 20.

The cost of a full price place at the camp is £61.04.
