Camp Beaumont has venues across west and south west London
A school holiday day camp provider is offering 10,000 free places this summer to Ukrainian children who have come to the UK to escape the war.
Camp Beaumont is partnering with Mail Force, the charity arm of the Daily Mail, to offer the fully funded places to any Ukrainian child aged 5-16 years at 40 camps including several in west and south west London.
Camp Beaumont locations participating in this scheme include Ark Putney Academy, Chiswick School, Grammar, St Augustine’s Priory, King’s College School, Wimbledon and Tiffin School.
The war has forced more than 1.8 million children to leave Ukraine and relocate their lives in several countries including the UK. Participation in holiday activity day camps will give the children the chance for some much-needed fun and adventure this summer, with opportunities to learn something new, practise English and make new friends.
The daily camps, which run Monday to Friday, offer creative, sporting and adventure activities including archery, arts and crafts, tennis, superhero academy, aqua Olympics and much more.
Each available place is for five days, and each child is eligible for up to two weeks at Camp Beaumont.
Jof Gaughan, Executive Director, at Camp Beaumont, said, “Camp Beaumont offers a great environment for Ukrainian children in the UK, who’ve been through so much, to have fun this summer. These children have been forced to leave their homes and settle somewhere new without a clear understanding of what their future holds. Whatever we can do to help them grow in confidence and enjoy themselves is key. There are so many activities for children to enjoy ranging from outdoor sports to arts and crafts sessions – and they might even get to try Quidditch!”
To further support the children and their families, parents will also be given a Tesco voucher with a value of £5 per day, to buy lunch for the children during the days they are at camp.

The programme will last for the state school summer holidays, until 2 September 2022.
