H&DCYC provides young people with exciting and enjoyable outdoor holidays at an affordable price. To achieve this we need volunteer leaders, not only to help the campers, but to provide music, games, activities and administration. Being a holiday leader requires effort but is very rewarding and great fun!
To ensure the safety of the children in our care we have a Health & Safety policy.
Please read our Safeguarding Policy — you will be required to sign that you have read it and agree to abide by it. We carry out a DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check on everyone involved with young people. Please ensure your application is with us before 1st June to enable this to be completed in time for camp. References will also be taken up with your church minister (or equivalent).
Which outdoor holiday?
Please check out the camps page to see which one you would be most suitable for. We require leaders of all ages and experience, but we do have the following minimum ages;
- Inheritance holiday: minimum age 25
- Discovery holiday: minimum age 18
- Explorer holiday: minimum age 16
We are extremely thankful for the donations we receive from volunteers and supporters each year - we know that many of you already give up lots of your time and energy. Your financial contribution is important as it helps us keep the cost of the holidays down, so that more children and young people can afford to come. Any gift is a great help, but an amount close to the Camper’s fee would be wonderful. That said, we want you more than we want your money!
There are a number of ways in which you can donate:
- Download the Monthly Giving Scheme – make a standing order of the amount you choose
- A gift as you book now – you will be temporarily redirected to Virgin Money Giving
- A promise to give at a later date – by bank transfer or through Virgin Money Giving
However you give, don’t forget to Gift Aid it if you pay tax; this increases the value of your gift by 25%
You can apply online with our online application request.
