A month-long series of camps which will see young people break free from the isolation of the Covid-19 lockdown have been planned for Bath & North East Somerset.

Summer Break Out will allow children and young people, as well as their families, to enjoy games and activities in a safe environment.

Crucially, they will also be able to enjoy a free, healthy meal. 

The free camps are planned for three age groups for children and young people and will take place at venues across B&NES, limiting the need for participants to travel far.

Summer Break Out has been planned for three different age groups, with programmes planned for young children (under 14) and their families, teenagers (aged 14 to 17) and older teenagers and young adults (aged 18 and over).

Summer Break Out will be a lifeline for children and young people who are isolated, lonely and hungry, and will be an essential intervention to help communities get back on their feet, providing:

  • Free access to healthy meals
  • Physical activity for youngsters and teens
  • Community activities
  • Support for struggling families with multi-agency advice
  • Support for older teens looking to get into work, apprenticeships or further study

Each session will follow strict safety guidelines on social distancing.
