Its good that others can enjoy it

do ya think theyd cope with an adhd kid though?

they were really good with both of my sons they very patient

£299 if you're not on benefits!

these hols help youngsters to find out how to become more self reliant, they are very good and my daughter had a brill time, we are not able to get reduced cost, but they are better value for money then the pgl camp she went to, pick up points are good, transport can be long depending on camp chosen and your location. Also menus are quite good, no junk.
Trip out last year was Alton towers, where she was, she loved the course content as well.

anyone know a camp that takes 17yr olds all the ones I click on stop at 16? ta op!

This is a bargain for what it is, but I personally hate these things. I have been on one myself (a few years ago now!) and had a horrible time. Everyone else already had there own 'gangs' and I felt left out big time. Now, as a parent, I prefer to spend my precious time when Im not working with my children. I had a colleague who both he and his wie worked, and as soon as the summer holidays came they stcuk the kids ful time into these places. Im surprised they even recognised their kids sometimes!

This group have a training course to become a leader up to age 19

i had the booklet a couple of weeks now as my daughter would like some space from her brother who has aspergers and behavior difficulty's while he is to young to go to one of these holidays. only shes a bit affraid of whether the other kids will get on with her as she is so used to being judged and not included into things at school where all her class know her brother, kinda guess they feel threatened by him in some ways, so she asked a couple of girls if they would like to go with her but they messed her about and led her on now she said she wont go!
if anyone can give me any feedback on the bonding thing at these camps as we have not used anything like this before, my daughter will be 11 in a weeks time, we were going to book a place down south.

This break is ideal for our single parent family as we are on benefits(due to my son only being at school on reduced timetable) and cannot afford a family holiday in the summer break this way at least my children( hopefully son next year) can get a holiday even if i cannot.

My son went "on his Own" the first time when he was just 11 and soon made friends. They are kept very busy and I am sure that your dd would have fun if you can get her to go.
They seem to have no problem taking kids who have special needs so your son will be able to go next year.

Thanks my son would love to go as he gets "bored" and constantly needs action in his day , i will talk to her later about it hope fully lots of good reports on here may sway her decision.

so did mine, we dropped him at the bus pick up point (he was 11). He was quite shy at that age but had an absolute ball - he has been every year since and has made loads of friends over the years. it normally costs us around £100 for the week but if you get WTC or income support I think it is about £25 all in. (or it may be £49 now!)

Also available if you live in Wales, might be worth changing the header? The week for 17-19yrs olds looks like it could be good for future leadership skills as well. Voted hot

My daughter went on this last year and had a whale of a time. She had to pay about £150 which she paid herself and has aready asked if she can go again this year.

Love it!

My eldest turns 10 in June do you think shes too young to send ? I know shes within the age limit I just mean fitting in , being away from home ect

Would be £150 for us. It's only £49 if you're on benefits. £150 if on child tax credits and £299 for everyone else.

my son was ten it was his first time away from home and his really shy but he loved it joined in with thae activities
he did go with his older brother but there is a four year age gap between them so they were in different groups i would say it brought him out of his self it even gave him confidence when he had to go up to big school

Thanks for the reply, shes really quite confident but has never really been away from home, its just the thought of her being picked on or wanting her mommy, I think its more me than her !

as she not a friend that could go with her
to tell you the truth i was scared to let him go as well but at the time i could not aford an holiday for all of us and my middle child had been ill with meningitis and encephalitis and i felt that they deserved an holiday so i let them go
no i didnt hardly sleep the nights that they were gone but by the time that we picked them up he had become more aware of his self and it was a good feeling to see the change in him

Sounds like you've had a rough time , I know that she will enjoy it and like you I probably won't sleep ! Im thinking about asking one of her friends or cousins to go with her. Cheers for the advice

People on Working Tax Credits do work mate



point taken just get miffed with the baby factories who when totted up state hand outs with all the other perks mean the normal worker looses out big style, put on top of what they get + the Tax/ins you would have paid they are on a nice packet, getting worse with the current crisis with mates who have lost their jobs after years of working being treat like scum at the job centres or whatever they call themselves these days

My daughter goes on her own,as said in earlier posts, she is still in contact with friends made there from previous hols. She has had a difficult time at school, (bullied not the time to go into).
She has gained so much from these hols, we have struggled to find the cash for these trips but it has been worthwhile.

Totally agree with you, I know some people do struggle to get childcare ect and it can be difficult finding work to fit around your kids but there is NO excuse for those lazy bums that don't want to work and reap all the benefits for it. .
