Calling all children with a bleeding disorder and/or their siblings aged between 9 and 15 years! Our highly anticipated residential Youth Camp will be held in the beautiful Scout Adventures Gilwell Park, Chingford, London, E4 7QW, from Monday 28 July – Friday 1 August 2025. 

Prepare for an unforgettable experience filled with fun, adventure, and the opportunity to create lifelong memories. Our Youth Camp is designed to provide a safe and inclusive environment where you can connect with others who understand your journey and build lasting friendships.

Prepare yourself for five action-packed days filled with thrilling activities that will push your boundaries and ignite your sense of adventure. From an exhilarating leap of faith to the heart-pounding excitement of a zip wire, you’ll have the chance to explore the great outdoors like never before.

Unleash your inner explorer with orienteering challenges that will test your navigational skills or conquer your fears as you take on the high ropes and abseiling courses. Our challenging team-building activities will bring out the best in you, fostering resilience, communication and problem-solving abilities that will serve you well beyond Youth Camp. Volunteer haemophilia nurses and a physiotherapist will also be on hand to provide medical treatment if needed. 

We aim to welcome all children who want to participate in our youth camp. However,

  • we are unable to provide one-on-one supervision for children with special needs
  • we will prioritise places for first-time attendees.

The accommodation is separated into lodges, with shared ensuite bedrooms plus a main hall for games and movie nights. Room assignments will be made based on appropriate gender and age groups. The centre has a large dining hall so our whole group can sit together for meal times. They will be provided with three meals a day.  Allergies and dietary needs will be pre-submitted. We understand that each child has unique preferences when it comes to food. However, we cannot accommodate individual requests for alternative meals beyond what is provided on the Scout Adventures set daily menus. 

Join us for an extraordinary journey where you’ll discover your strength, forge lifelong connections, and create treasured memories. Don’t miss out on this incredible opportunity to be part of Youth Camp 2025!
