Welcome to the Youth Adventure Programme!
What is the Youth Adventure Programme?
The Youth Adventure Programme is a series of residential adventure camps and day activities over three years, where young people have the chance to take part in a range of activities, work in a team, experience group living and challenge themselves in a new environment. The camps are provided completely free of charge to the young people who take part.
Young people participate in our Youth Adventure Programme by attending the Explore Day as an introduction to outdoor activities and the Mitchemp Trust. Following this there are 3 residential opportunities; Mountain Camp, Coastal Camp and Forest Camp. In the final year of the programme there are 3 Pathway Days, where alongside activities young people have the chance to look into other activities and things going on in their local area.
Who will be there?
There will be up to 40 young people on each of the camps, who will all come from different schools and groups across Wiltshire. The same young people will be on all of your trips, so once you’ve met them all at the first one, you’ll know everyone for the rest of the camps. You’ll be in a different activity group for each of the camps with around 9 other young people. There’ll also be 3 Mitchemp Trust volunteer staff with you, and an activity instructor, who will be qualified and experienced in the activity you are doing.
