Supporting disabled and non-disabled teenagers to spend time together throughout the year at wilderness camps, encouraging self-agency, positive risk taking, cooperation, friendship and inclusion.
Creative Camping hold residential and, due to the pandemic, online activities for disabled and non-disabled young people.
The project supports teenagers and young adults to spend time together in nature as well as online and encourages self-agency, positive risk taking, cooperation, friendship and inclusion.
Camps are run co-operatively, and everyone joins in cooking, collecting firewood, map reading and entertaining each other. The camps are supported by veteran campers but mainly run by a team of young people who have been camping with us for years. The training and confidence building for these young leaders cuts across all our youth projects and we now have an extraordinary competent and confident young team.
Since the start of the pandemic and the national lockdown restrictions, we have offered several socially distanced day camps as well as zoom sessions as a vital source of interaction.
