Camper Leadership Programme

Our Camper Leadership Programme (CLP) is designed for previous Barretstown campers, teaching them life skills that can be used outside of camp and in future life, helping to rebuild confidence and encourage peer support.

What is Barretstown’s Camper Leadership Programme?

At Barretstown we offer previous campers (aged 15-17) the opportunity to return and take part in our Camper Leadership Programme (CLP). The programme runs across 3 sessions throughout the year and is designed to help campers develop life skills and gain a deeper understanding of how we run our programmes at Barretstown.

Join a community of people that have attended Barretstown as a camper who are excited to develop and learn while building connections with others their age. During the programme, you’ll be given the opportunity to practice these new skills while working alongside our Activity Leaders and Caras.

What are you waiting for? Step outside that comfort zone and seize the opportunity to do things you may have thought were impossible before. To register your interest, fill out our contact form below and a member or our CLP team will be in touch.
