Redshift supports the Summer Camps Trust; Rob Collier, a manager at Redshift, has acted as a Trustee since 2016. Rob combines his knowledge of business strategy, web development and analysis with nearly 10 years of experience volunteering on residential summer camps with young people.
The Summer Camps Trust highlights the benefits that summer camps can have for young people and raises the profile of well-run residential summer camps in Britain so that more young people may benefit from these remarkable opportunities.
The Trust is run by a Board of Trustees of summer camp experts with a broad and comprehensive knowledge of summer camp provision in the UK. The board includes representatives from each of the main political parties, and has wide and enthusiastic support in the educational and outdoor industries.
The Summer Camps Trust supports for the following benefits for young people:
On summer camps children have the chance to just be children, away from the pressures of school and the commercial world.
Enjoy the outdoors
Exploring, playing in the woods and taking part in activities in the Great Outdoors makes children fitter, happier and more relaxed.
Children will be encouraged to try new things, and in the process they often discover new hobbies or talents, and often find they enjoy things they didn’t expect to enjoy.
On a summer camp, children will meet others from diverse backgrounds and live closely with them in a community. They learn to be tolerant, understanding and learn to recognise their own contribution to the community.
Summer camps provide a different rhythm of life and, for many, a much needed change where they are able to spend their days playing outdoors, eating well and sleeping soundly. Through having fun together and living within a community atmosphere, young people feel valued and more positive.
Positive role models
The young adults who work with the children on summer camps are positive role models, providing a rare opportunity for a child to interact with an adult who is not part of the family unit or a teacher. Their leader will care for them, offer them support and advice when needed, and always be there for them throughout the week.
