Summer camp social information

Young Kennel Club Social Manager: Fay Moore  

Once onsite you will meet our wonderful Young Kennel Club Social Manager Fay Moore who has a brilliant programme to keep our teams very busy and plenty of opportunities for family members to join too! 

The social programme is a highlight for many and this year we have created some new events but also brought back old favourites. For those of you who are new to camp, we have a team social evening each night and we encourage all parents and siblings to join us to support the teams. 

Our handy social programme guide below gives you a sneak peek and a handy guide to each activity that will give you all the information you will need to have a fabulous time! 

Sunday night - family quiz night

Are you ready to play your cards right... Shout BINGO, pit yourself against our general knowledge quizzes? We can't wait for you all to join us for the family fun that we have in store. This is your chance to win great prizes! This is a great night and one for everyone to get involved!  

Monday night – Crystal Maze

After its success in 2021, Crystal Maze is back, with brand new challenges and a bigger maze! This is a great chance for all our teams to get to know each other as they work together against the clock undertaking a range of challenges. Parents and siblings, there is also a chance for you to make your own teams and join in the fun!   

Tuesday night – the Commonwealth Games night

With the Commonwealth Games coming to The Midlands this year, we are bringing our own version to camp. Back bigger and better than ever, this time including both Track and Field events. This is a great night to cheer on all the teams, and also get involved in some of the parent events. Team members, remember to pack suitable footwear.

What you need to bring: Sensible footwear for sports night. 

Wednesday night - family Ceilidh dance

St Patricks Day- family fun night! Have you ever wanted to become Lord of the dance? Well now is your chance to follow in the footsteps of Michael Flatley, as we welcome to camp, our first ever Ceilidh band and caller. We know it's August and not March, but that’s not stopping us from having our very own St Patricks Day celebrations. Let's look for those pots of gold at the end of the rainbow, as we dance the night away.  There will be prizes for the best fancy dress parents and teams, so jump and jig on down and join the fun.  

What you need to bring – St Patricks Day fancy dress, comfy shoes.

Thursday night – end of term school disco

This is THE evening of camp and a great chance for everyone on site to join us to party the evening away. The evening entertainment will be provided by the brilliant teams who will be performing the routines they have practiced throughout the week.  

This year, instead of creating their own routine, teams will be leading the entire disco in well-known dance classics, from The Macarena to YMCA. We can’t wait to see everyone dancing the night away.  

The Theme for the last night party this year is school fancy dress. All team members will stay in their school uniform outfits for their dance, so you won’t need to change. Parents and siblings are invited to join us in dressing up with the chance to win best-dressed prizes.  

What you need to bring: School fancy dress.

Best in Show- Camp 2021

This is what all your hard work at team time has been working towards, the coveted Camp champ rosettes. Throughout the week all of your points will be added together and the winners will be announced during the last night's party.  

Other activities on throughout the week

Camp Challenges 

During the week, the teams will take part in three camp challenges that are based on three one-hour sessions. Working together the teams must create the brief they have been given. Teams can win big points from the challenges, but remember there are also bonus points on offer for teams that work well together. 

What you need to bring: please bring a small selection of recycling such as cardboard, plastic bottles, egg cartons etc. 

Bonus Points 

This year as well as the points you can gain from training and social nights, there will be bonus points on offer that will be handed out to teams and members who are showing great teamwork and lots of enthusiasm. It really is the taking part that counts 

One more thing... 

Camp is about having fun with new friends. It doesn’t matter if you have never danced before or you don't believe that being creative is your thing- it’s the taking part and being a part of a team that counts. Join in, have fun and make Camp 2022 the best Camp ever!
