  1. For over 40 years, thousands of children from all over Kirklees have spent their time off from school camping, playing games, and making friends at one of the longest running summer camps in the UK. Children, aged 9-12, stay at Woolley Edge Scout Camp for 4 days and 3 nights, with 6 camps over the course of the school holiday. The children have a magical time at camp living and playing freely in the outdoors with no electronic games or TV.

    Thanks to our fundraising and generous supporters we have been able to reduce the cost of an assisted place for low-income families to £10 and maintain the cost of a full price place at £61. The cost covers travel, accommodation food and all activities for 3 nights and 4 days. We provide travel to the site by coach from three pick up stations: Dewsbury, Huddersfield and Woolley Edge M1 Service Station.

    Please see our website for this summer's dates and to book.

    *Each and every place at summer camp is subsidised by our own fundraising and as a charity we ask that if you can make an extra donation to support our work, take a look at the link below. Summer camp is voluntarily staffed by experienced teachers, youth workers and students. Every single penny raised goes towards summer camp. Find out more information and book via our website
