Freedom 2 Be camp

Freedom 2 Be (F2B) is an annual summer support camp for 11–17-year-olds living with HIV.

The 2024 camp will run from 30 July -3 August and is free to attend.

Older than 17 and still want to get involved? Check out our volunteer opportunities

Camp offers up to 100 young people from across the UK and Ireland a unique opportunity to:

  • share experiences with other young people who also live with HIV
  • meet role models and mentors who are living with HIV
  • spend time in an environment where HIV is safe to discuss and not seen to overshadow a person’s identity or aspirations
  • learn more about HIV and how they can live well with it
  • find their voices and challenge stigma.

Over the course of five days, young people come together for workshops on issues related to growing up and living well with HIV, creative activities which encourage self-expression, and outdoor activities which help build confidence and encourage teamwork. There is plenty of free time throughout and a celebration at the end.
