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 3 million children and young people, and counting…

We’re a not-for-profit that has worked across the world to get over 3 million children and young people active and enjoying the benefits of an active lifestyle, and we’ve provided employment experience for around 30,000 young people.

Since we were formed in 1991, we’ve generated 95% of our income via our direct programmes and our work with external organisations, all of which contribute to our vision and charitable objectives.

We provide sports and activity camps

Since 1991 we’ve operated the UK’s leading sports and activity camps. Kings 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 designed to get 5-17s active, having fun and learning together. We deliver Kings Camps at over 60 exceptional school and university sites across the UK.
