It is with the deepest regret that, following very careful consideration we have made the difficult decision that as a result of the continuing Coronavirus pandemic, Derby Kids' Camp Summer Camp for 2021 has been cancelled.
Last year when Summer Camp was cancelled for the first time in the charity's history, we had all hoped and expected things to be back to normal for summer 2021. However, the timeline for vaccinations in 2021 means that we cannot guarantee the safety and wellbeing of our volunteers and the children.
Though this has once again been an extremely difficult decision for us to have to make, the health and safety of the children & families we support and our team of volunteers, their families and loved ones is of paramount importance.
It is without question that we hope with all our hearts to resume our Summer Camp holidays in 2022 and, once the pandemic is beaten and restrictions are lifted, Derby Kids' Camp will consider any opportunities to provide alternative breaks for children such as weekend breaks.
To the schools and the many families throughout Derbyshire who Derby Kids' Camp support - we offer our sincere apologies and, should you feel that we might be able to help in other ways during these difficult times, we would ask you to contact us to discuss.
We wish all our volunteers, children, families and supporters the very best of health and send your our warmest wishes during this extra-ordinary and challenging period in all our lives.
Chairman, Derby Kids' Camp
