Voluntary & Community

Every year at Path Hill we run various enrichment days and residential camps for organisations that support young people such as:
  • Young Carers groups,
  •  Bereavement and Hospice charities,
  • Rainbow, Scout and DOE groups.
Young Carers
Young people who support a family member can experience anxiety, stress and a sense of isolation as a result of their caring roles. Our residential camps help to alleviate this by providing a few days respite, a chance to be carefree, to have fun and socialise with their peers. These camps are carefully planned to hold the young people that attend in a safe space in order to support them emotionally and just as importantly they are given the opportunity to have some down time.
The children go home with their batteries re charged,  having made some new friends. Many also leave with a newfound confidence from having challenged themselves during their stay.
 
Bereavement and Hospice days and camps
We also work alongside charities that provide essential support to children going through bereavement or living with family members that are very ill. The days and camps that we run always start with a conversation with you about what you want to achieve. We can:
  • Plan, facilitate and oversee the whole camp
  •  Support you while you run your own day or camp
  • Provide stand alone sessions that run along side your own activities
  • Provide you with a beautiful woodland space in which you can deliver your own day
Funding and donations
We are fortunate to have some funding donated to us from the Teenage Wilderness Trust for some of these camps. We would love to be able to run more and to offer subsidy to as many groups as we can.
If you would like to help support these camps to enable more children to have chance for support and respite, please contact us.
 
Rainbows, Scouts and DOE
At Path Hill we understand how powerful being in the outdoors is for young people. 
We like to support our local community groups by providing the perfect space in which you can run a camp. Our large camping field can accommodate groups up to 60. There is also an outdoor kitchen, compost toilets and fire pits.
If you would like to rent one of our spaces for your group please speak to the office on 0118 9842500
