Camp Camp 2018: Root to Rise
Camp Camp is back!
Welcome to the summer residential for LGBT+ young people aged 16-25.
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, our grounding, knowing the land we stand on so we can grow from a solid foundation to unpack the splendour of what lives in our hearts 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, campfires, delicious cooking and eating, self-development opportunities, self-care, and nourishing connections with like-hearted souls and the natural world.
This camp will include an exploration of empowered selfhood as an act of political and cultural resistance to oppression – how can we use our unique talents to make positive changes to our environments? We are going to spend the week nurturing these aspects of ourselves, deepening and strengthening our roots so we can rise more powerfully than ever.
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.
To apply, please read our Information Pack and Data Protection Policy, and fill out the Application Form and submit it to firstname.lastname@example.org by 1st May 2018. We will get back to you by 15th May 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.

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.
