The course is run by Simon Stanley who is the Targeted Youth Services Team Coordinator for East Sussex Children’s Services and an experienced youth worker.

SCYP Summer Camp 2020

Our annual and popular Summer Camp for members of Sussex Clubs for Young People is planned to take place on 10th-12th July at Blacklands Farm. We want to keep the price to a very attractive £45 pp including all activities, accommodation and food. Adults supporting young people and not taking part in activities will cost £15 as a contribution towards food and accommodation.

We want to involve more groups and young people in the running of this camp. Perhaps you can help by offering your skills while in the camp either as an instructor of outdoor activities if you are qualified (e.g archery, canoeing, climbing, abseiling), help with cooking during the camp, organise games (e.g Wide Games, Man Hunt etc) or in the pre-planning of the camp.

If you would like to bring your group or if you have any ideas about how we can make this the best Summer Camp ever, we would love to hear from you.
