Each year to run our 5 weeks of Summer Camp requires approximately
150 committed volunteers, who very kindly support us with a week
of their precious time as a helper on camp.
Providing holidays for up to 60 children per week, the five groups
of approx. 30 helpers look after the children and share in a fantastic
holiday in the great outdoors!
Volunteering for camp might also involve cooking, helping out with
equipment or welfare support; but will always involve some great
walks in the countryside, campfires, trips to adventure playgrounds
& swimming, craft & games, the odd impromptu water fight
and generally ensuring everyone has a fantastic time!
For details of volunteering for Summer Camp, please contact our
Volunteer Organiser at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note: All DKC volunteers are subject to
an advanced CRB check prior to approval.
Derby Kids' Camp is 100% funded by sponsorship, donations, fundraising
events and charitable trusts. Each year costs us £30.000 ~
£35,000 and we heavily rely upon the continued amazing hard
work of our fundraising team to reach this figure.
We are always looking for new ways to raise funds and would love
to hear from anyone interested in joining the fundraising team,
or who would like to organise an event themselves - whether it be
a sponsored sporting event, dance or performance or whether you
can join us in one of our bag packing or bucket shaking sessions!

Derby Kids’ Camp own all its own equipment to service a full
operational ‘canvass village’ for five weeks each year
and nearly 450 people!
Therefore, throughout the year, our merry band of equipment volunteers
spend a few hours each month (Sunday mornings / Wednesday evenings)
to ensure that every tent, marquee, waterproof coat and jigsaw puzzle
is ship-shape for the following year!
You don’t need to be built like Samson or be handy with a
hammer and saw - there’s always something for everyone to
do - big or small, old or young!
If you can spare just a couple of hours once in a while to help
out, please contact our Equipment Officer at email@example.com
Without our volunteers, there is no Derby
Kids’ Camp - thank you to every one of you for your enormous
generosity and support.
