Camp Camp 2018: Root to Rise

Camp Camp is back!
Welcome to the summer residential for LGBT+ young people aged 15-25.
Get ready to open your mind and heart and discover all the magic that is waiting inside you.
The theme this year is “Root to Rise” and we will focus on getting up close and personal with our roots, our history,  knowing the land we stand on so we can grow from a solid foundation to go forward and make meaningful changes in our communities.

We will employ all kinds of creative methods to nurture our exploration – expect movement workshops, creative arts activities, delicious cooking and eating, self-development opportunities, self-care, and nourishing connections with like-hearted souls and the natural world.

This is an opportunity for self-development where you can learn new things, meet new people, challenge yourself and step out of your comfort zone. Therefore we are asking for a slightly more serious commitment than for a purely recreational camp. Think of it as part creative play time, part retreat.

This year we will be running away to a beautiful converted church in the middle of the countryside. Get ready for campfires, stories, wide starry skies, and beautiful walks around the nearby lakes.

To apply, please read our Information Pack and Data Protection Policy, and fill out the Application Form and submit it to jess@thekitetrust.org.uk by 31st May 2018. We will get back to you by 8th June to inform you of the status of your application.

Please note that we prioritise new applicants in order to support as many people to take part in Camp Camp as possible, but we do reserve a limited number of places for those who have attended previously.

 

QUACY: Queer Arts Cambridge Youth

After  two rip-roaring productions “What you don’t see” in February and “This is Me!” in July our very successful drama group QUACY returns for a third outing in collaboration with Marina Pallares-Elias and the Cambridge based charity Acting Now.

Join us in October 2018 for a brand new season of this  exciting drama group for LGBT+  young people.

QUACY is a weekly theatre based group for young LGBT+ people to come together and engage in a program of positive activities that will help to reduce isolation, improve confidence and self-esteem. Young people will get the chance to make work around the issues directly affecting them. It’s a great opportunity to meet other LGBT+ people, make friends and address issues related to sexuality and gender in an environment that encourages positive creative expression.

We are welcoming new members in October and our first session will be on October 25th, we meet weekly on Thursdays at 4.30pm.

If you would like to join us, or you know somebody who would like to be part of this new exciting project contact us!

Ongoing

Developing the skills and talents of our young people is central to the face-to-face work we deliver.

One on one, we may work with a young person to enhance their interpersonal skills, talk about budgeting and CVs, physical, mental, and emotional well-being, as well as meeting their support needs.

In our youth groups, we explore activities concerning sexual health, cookery skills and healthy eating, mindfulness, as well as creative crafts and artistic projects. We run particular programs such as Young Pink and Talented where the young people manage their own creative projects, developing skills around leadership, research, communication and time management.

Peer mentoring is a way for young people to volunteer with us and gain useful personal and workplace skills based around our work in schools. They benefit hugely from public speaking, sharing their experiences and educating each other.

If you would like to find out about skills development opportunities for under 25s please get in touch.
