Giving kids a break

Welcome to Derby Kids Camp!

Derby Kids’ Camp is a 100% volunteer-run charity committed to providing FREE holidays for Derby’s most deserving young children.

With your help and the support of over 150 volunteers each year, more than 300 young children benefit from what may be their only opportunity of a holiday this year - enjoying an exciting, fun, free break in the great outdoors!
Derby Kids’ Camp holidays help to provide a much-needed break for disadvantaged children, children who will benefit from social or personal development or to provide a respite period for parents or carers.

If you're looking to volunteer, to support & fundraise or most importantly of all - if you're one of the kids joining us on holiday this summer! - then you'll find loads of information, opportunities, pictures and videos here at derbykidscamp online!
