Support Camp

About camp

Our last camp took place in Derbyshire from 14th-18th August 2017. 91 children and young people living with HIV, aged 11-16 from across the UK and Ireland attended. An evaluation report about the camp can be read here. You can also read our camp 2017 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 come together for 5 days. Everyone who attends is HIV positive. During camp, there are mandatory workshops on issues related to growing up and living well with HIV, creative and outdoor activities which encourage expression and sharing this experience, as well as free time to build friendships.
