We exist to:Get children active, having fun and learning together

To do this we operate globally to run activity camps for children, create activity jobs for young people and provide people, programmes, training and resources to individuals and organisations that work directly with children.

We’ve worked with over 2 million children and young people, and counting…

We’re a not-for-profit that has worked across the world to get over 2 million children and young people active and enjoying the benefits of an active lifestyle, and we’ve provided employment experience for around 20,000 young people.

Since we were formed in 1991, we’ve generated our own income and the programmes that we run and our work with external organisations positively contribute to our charitable objectives.

We run sports and activity camps

Since 1991 we’ve operated the UK’s leading sports and activity camps. Our camps provide the opportunity for children to get active and have fun during the school holidays.

Our programmes include over 30 dynamic sports and activities that get 5-17s active, having fun and learning together. We deliver our camps at over 60 exceptional school and university sites across the UK.

Case studies & stories

Launching hundreds of dream careers with Royal Caribbean

Working in partnership with Royal Caribbean, we’ve placed over 400 young people into travel-jobs, and for many their travel-job experience provides them with a critical start into a longer-term teaching, childcare of sports coaching career.

Case Study: Creating a space-themed children’s programme for NCL

Norwegian Cruise Lines, one of the world’s largest cruise lines, has partnered with us for over 10 years. They approached us to create a fully-themed evening of activities for 6-9-year olds. They asked for something completely different to their existing programmes, but as with all their programmes it must be inclusive, engaging and something children wanted to be part of.

Kings Camps forms partnerships to offer respite to young carers

There are approximately 44,000 young carers in Scotland who provide care to parents, siblings or other relatives, and thanks to our charity partnership, we’re able to provide carers with a week of fun, activity and encouragement.
