Since the first camp in 2010, we have run ‘Freedom To Be’ annually. The camp is for young people from all over the UK and Ireland to come together for 5 days. All the participants attending camp are aged 11-16 and are living 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, and free time to build friendships.
Unfortunately at this stage due to the ongoing COVID19 pandemic, we are unable to run a face to face camp in August as planned. We are looking into what we may still be able to provide as an alternative, and will keep you informed here of our plans. Please see messages above from some of our camp team, who are all thinking of you at this time.
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.
