About Explorers Camp

Explorers Camp has a full programme for 11 - 17 year-olds, as well as one for families with younger children. It's a chance to have a great holiday in a Christian atmosphere. Each day involves a worship event, time to dig deeper into the Bible and tons of fantastic games, activities and food (oh, the food!). Recently we explored the theme Relevant, when we discovered whether the Bible is just an outdated book, or God's living word that still speaks to us today. And is Christianity a religious club or something more? We loved hearing what our campers and our fantastic speaker thought, as we journeyed through this theme together. There were loads of other things to keep us busy too, like theme parks, sports and crafts.
It's an amazing opportunity to build friendships and make memories; there's no better place to be next summer; we'd love to see you there!

We are camping somewhere new for 2024! Sconce Campsite is on the edge of Baildon Moor and has some exciting facilities we cannot wait to use!

What our parents say...

"My three children have all loved going to Explorer's Camp. They have made important friendships, learned more about following God and had enormous fun. My oldest is now a leader - what a great opportunity to develop leadership skills and share what she has learned over the years!" 

Parents / carers...

We know it can be tricky sending your children away to a summer camp, but rest assured. Explorers Camp has been running for over 70 years. We're a Christian camp affiliated to Gledholt Methodist Church, Huddersfield, where some of our leaders can be found. Collectively, we attend many different types of churches, which are primarily in Huddersfield and Hartlepool. Our leaders have a thorough application process and we have the highest safeguarding standards, with all our leaders attending additional training each year.


We also understand that budgets can be squeezed for families, especially in the summer, so we always aim to keep our prices as low as possible. Any profit we do make goes into our Ken Woodhead Trust Fund, which helps pay for campers who would otherwise not be able to go. It costs £110, which includes accommodation, food and most trips. Extra trips are optional with additional costs. We also advise giving your young person some spending money for the onsite tuck shop and treats when visiting local places.
