We are super excited to announce that we have four BRAND NEW skills clinics lined up for Camp Williams this summer!

Mountain biking, cooking, crafts (including textiles, pottery, and fine art options), and American flag football will be on offer at Camp Williams at the Nottingham Emmanuel School from July 2017. The full range of skills clinics on offer for 8-15 year olds this summer includes game design, paddle sports, American flag football, skateboarding, drama & theatre, music, mountain biking, basketball, arts & crafts, cooking, science, football, film & photography, archery, and climbing. How exciting is that!

Designed to be fun and challenging, skills clinics are opportunities for children to learn and develop a new skill with expert training.

Skills clinics are just one of the ways in which Camp Williams promotes positive, experience-led development for young people. Children from the age of four take part in swimming, camp rallies, group games, and Camp Fire Fridays, making friends and lasting memories along the way. Camp Williams helps to build self-esteem, giving young people the confidence that they need to seek exciting, fulfilling experiences in adult life.

You can see why Steffen Benbow, our Camps and Adventure Services Manager, thinks skills clinics are so awesome by reading this interview.

As well as full bookings which includes skills clinics for 8 – 15 year olds, Camp Williams offers one-day programmes: Kids Zone (4 -7 year olds) and Pioneer Camp (8 – 12 year olds). All children take part in sports, games, arts, crafts, and swimming. Kimberley Camp and YMCA childcare also run in the school holidays, as well as trips and activities with YMCA Adventure Guides. Take a look at our website to see all of the programmes that we offer for families and young people during summer.
