Kirklees Summer Play Camp 2022 – bookings now open for a summer of fun!

A breathtaking view to wake up to!

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 four days and three 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 three nights and four days. We provide travel to the site by coach from three pick up stations: Dewsbury, Huddersfield and Woolley Edge M1 Service Station.

The dates for this summer are:
