Salford Children's Holiday Camp

Objectives

Salford Children's Holiday Camp at Prestatyn in North Wales was set up to provide a sea-side holiday for the poor children of Salford. The Holiday Camp hosts school groups, church groups, and a variety of youth groups, including Young Carers, Young Pregnancy Groups for a much needed holiday by the sea.

In order to take the next step, we need to build the depth and breadth of skills on the Management Committee to support the operations of the Camp, increase bookings and secure the funding necessary to develop the Camp for the future.

Activities

The Holiday Camp can accommodate up to sixty young people and their support staff in traditional single-bedded dormitory accommodation. All groups are fully catered and we offer this as cheaply as we can to enable as many children as possible to afford to visit.

There is a staff accommodation block and community facilities.
