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.
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?
Our camps are open to young people aged 12-16 and living in the UK. If your application is successful, we will allocate you to one of our three camps listed below. Our decision will be based on a number of factors including your proximity to our three priority regions. Young people living outside of our three priority regions are still very much welcome to apply and if you are successful we will allocate you to the most suitable camp.

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...
