Previous camps:

Our tenth Annual Support camp for children and young people living with HIV, took place from July 30th - August 3rd 2019.  We had 79 children and young people coming together from across the UK and Ireland to attend the event. We had a volunteer team of 31, over half of whom are also living with HIV. You can read the newsletter about this years camp here. The 2019 evaluation report is available here. You can also read our camp 2019 newsletter here.

Since the first camp in 2010, we have run ‘Freedom To Be’ annually. The camp sees young people aged between 11-16 travel from all over the UK and Ireland and come together for 5 days. All the participants live with HIV. During camp, there are workshops on issues related to growing up and living well with HIV, creative and outdoor activities which encourage expression, as well as free time to build friendships.
