Summer Camp

After a year of fund-raising, mid-July saw a team of 16 Sixth Formers, accompanied by KES staff, take a group of Southampton’s young carers camping in the New Forest.  Throughout the week, the children were able to take part in various activities from visiting Monkey World to attempting a ‘Total Wipeout’ style obstacle course, whilst time on the campsite was spent playing football or board games, making loom bands and strengthening friendships. The week came to a close with the annual Talent Show.  The camp provided a fun and carefree week for the children whose daily lives often involve a high level of responsibility caring for members of their family.
