UK Teen Group Camps.

The camps are based in North West England and as they involve camping and hiking we may use a number of different locations depending on the time of year and weather conditions.

All our UK camps are "back to basics" whereby your young person will be completely away from all of life's modern distractions (i.e., mobile phones, computers, electricity etc.) and your young person will start to learn basic life skills.

Outdoor therapeutic work is so much more than just holding sessions in the outdoors.

Everything we do is designed to create a therapeutic experience for your teen. Whether your teen is building a fire, cooking, collecting wood, speaking with me or in a group, therapeutic work takes place throughout the day, every day.

Daily exercise and a healthy diet can do amazing things for the body in a short period of time and on our outdoor therapy camps the teens get plenty of fresh air and exercise.

Our diet is basic, healthy and nutritionally sound and is mostly cooked over the camp fire.

Our Camps

Our camps aim to assist, encourage and empower young people in order to enable them to take greater control of their lives.

We engage with young people to explore their real selves away from their home environment and their peer group and this is achieved by using a therapeutic approach, responding to their individual needs.


Camp Objectives –

The camps are based on physical, mental and personal/ group work challenges in the outdoors which can help to develop the young persons inter-personal skills, self-discipline and self-confidence.

To increase self-esteem and instil a sense of self-worth which can underpin a positive contribution to society.

To raise confidence in young people who may be experiencing many issues that affect their learning and to always encourage active participation.

To promote community cohesion and to enable young people to become more sustainable within their families, peer groups and education.

I strive to let teens learn as much as possible from the consequences of their actions as I feel that a lesson learned through hands-on experience is far more valuable than compliance with a rule established by an authority figure.

I know that teenagers can be heavily influenced by their peers and social media in both positive and negative ways so therefore I only have small numbers on each group camp maximum of 4 per camp. (see our Terms and Conditions page).

I am with your young person from the moment they arrive to the time they leave. I will work with your young person to help them recognise the long-term value of their experiences at camp and by looking at the reasons behind their behaviours and how they can make changes for the better.

The camps are also an opportunity for your young person to experience a "Digital Detox holiday" from online gaming, social media, computer games, mobile phones and any other electronic devices and gives them a chance to completely disconnect from the modern world.

Therapeutic Camp

I individually tailor the therapeutic work to the individuals needs and the many complicated issues that they may be experiencing.

The therapeutic work is Person Centred based alongside using aspects of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Gestalt, Solution Focused and also Brief Therapy depending on the individual's personal issues and their participation in in-group and one-to-one sessions.

Talking is also used which will help a young person to understand themselves (and their present position within family, peer groups and social settings) so that they are eventually able to resolve their own issues. Non verbal therapy can also be used if needed (i.e. art, music, creative writing).

Our camps are specifically designed to help young people who have the desire to want to make changes to have a better home life and Teencamps-UK will advise the families how to ensure appropriate support mechanisms are in place for when they return to their home environment.
