JOIN A LIFE-CHANGING TRIP
Aged 12-16? Spend an all-inclusive week on one of our conservation camps this year. Connect with nature and learn how you can protect it alongside other young people from across the UK. The camps are packed with conservation activities, careers advice and adventure guided by young conservation professionals, the AFC team and our partners. You will return ready to drive change in your community.
‘The feeling of weightlessness or being able to breathe unrestrictedly and without hesitation. A sense of empowerment that the sea and air have given to me. A connection to something that is more than just trees or a body of water. Use it.’
Camp reflections from Kat, AFC Camp Participant
We believe that every young person can be a conservationist. In order to come on our camp you will simply need to show us that you are passionate about helping the planet and ready to lead positive change, by answering three simple questions:
1. Identify an environmental issue that is important to you and tell us why. This could be a local, national or global issue.
2. What action would you take to solve this problem?
3. How would you persuade other young people to take action with you?
We will be three running camps next summer for young people living in South East England, South West England & Wales and North West England.
The challenge for each camp launches on March 1st, 2020.

BECOMING AN AMBASSADOR
Your adventure doesn't end when the camp is over. Every young person who returns inspired from their camp experience is invited to join our ambassador programme for the following year. This action-packed mentoring scheme further develops your conservation skills and knowledge and helps you take real action back home.
More from our current Ambassadors coming soon...
