Kirklees Summer Play Camp returns

The popular Kirklees Summer Play Camp is returning this year, to give children another opportunity to get outside and enjoy the great outdoors, meet new people, and have fun!

What does it include?

Over the summer six week holidays at Woolley Edge Camp Site, all children aged 9-12 get the opportunity to camp out in the country and take part in 4 days worth of activities, including learning archery, circus skills, water slide, giant Connect-Four, arts and crafts, team games, cycling, and other sports.

The children will spend their 3 nights under canvas, close to nature and surrounded by open countryside, sleeping in tents.

The camp is run by an experienced voluntary organisation and is staffed by teachers, students and skilled volunteers.
