Our mini camps are an ideal way for young people who may not have been away from home before to try new activities and challenges that will be fun whilst helping to boost self-esteem, confidence, problem solving and social skills. It is also the opportunity to meet other young people who have experienced a burn injury or skin-related illness and share experiences and coping strategies. We usually take between 8-10 club members, most of whom will feel a little worried about coming, being away from home, not knowing other people and what the food will be like! Our mini camps usually include a workshop run by the club psychologist on a topic relevant to the club members attending. Our last minicamp was at the end of May 2015 and we took 9 young people to Green Park Activity and Adventure Centre in Buckinghamshire. We had a great time learning about and sharing experiences of bullying and how to manage it as well as climbing, cycling, swimming, swinging, abseiling, playing UNO, bananagrams and watching movies! Some of these members have already put their names down to come to the week-long National Camp run by the Burns Camps charity in August.
