This programme uses a selection of our usual activities which are specially adapted for this very young age group. Junior Camp has been a long-standing and successful programme in Leysin, Switzerland for many years. Young campers are introduced to a variety of new activities and games working happily inside a small group of other children of the same age who come to this unique, friendly camp from all over the world.
Of course, we realise just how important it is to choose the right camp for their first residential experience. Village Camps has 44 years experience working with young children. So, we know just how to provide a fun, caring and secure environment that guarantees the right environment for the perfect first experience away from home.
Throughout the day, experienced, caring counsellors guide young campers through a magical programme of specially designed activities. Under constant patient supervision by Village Camps counsellors each camper receives clear guidance during each activity. Campers are introduced to many different activities, some of which may become part of their future lives. With sensible direction and so much fun going on our very young campers are soon enjoying new activities, challenges and sports and making new friends. There are many facilities for the juniors on the campus including a state-of-the-art play area designed for this age-group.
Junior Campers stay together in the main building alongside (but separate from) the main camper group. During the day and in the evening the Junior Camp is run as a ‘club’ with the campers sharing large comfortable apartments with their new found friends. They will have access to a room for their leisure and chill-out time when they are not out and about enjoying their special activities.
There are full details of the range of facilities in the York programme from which we will select those that are suitable for our juniors, who will also have their own separate activities on our excursions to Manchester and York. The Junior Camp is ideal for any 7-9 year-old and suits those in this age-group who stay in camp with older brothers or sisters who are there at the same time. Although they will be on separate programmes, there will be time meet up in Camp and maintain friendly, family contact.
