Youth groups

Personal development at great prices
Acorn Camping Villages have been welcoming a wide range of youth groups such as sports clubs, youth clubs and various charities to help engage and motivate hard to reach young people for the past 35 years.  Because we can provide groups of 35 more with exclusive use of a camping village you can tailor the experience to suit your group’s specific needs and desired learning/personal development outcomes.  You’ll also have a private dining area and the whole ‘village’ experience enhances community spirit and helps cement friendships.

Our wide range of destinations and itineraries ensure there is something for everyone (and all budgets) but you can always be assured of a fun, adventurous experience!  We’re proud to offer more technical than your average residential centre, providing experiences many won’t have tried before such as sailing and white water rafting. These activities can be tailored to suit the group’s aims and objectives, which for some may be about achieving maximum performance and team development while for others may be about coping with challenges, respect for others and valuing opinions.  Whatever your requirements, our instructors will have experience of delivering them.

You certainly don’t need to be an experienced adventurer, we’re used to working with everyone from 5-year-olds to thrill seeking Cadets and even families, so whether you’re an experienced camper or it’s your first time under canvas, you won’t feel at all out of place.

We want to make the whole experience as easy as possible for you as Party Leader, so we organise your travel arrangements, your camp will all be set up ready for your arrival and you’re given a direct number and email of a dedicated contact in the office who will arrange everything for you.  During your trip, you’ll have your own Village Manager to take care of your needs who will also organise all evening activities should you need them to.

You’re always under pressure to keep costs you pass on to parents/carers down, which is why we work hard to keep prices affordable with no hidden extras.  We try to suit all budgets starting with a weekend in the Brecon Beacons for £54pp plus Vat, all food, drink and activities.

Every March we release some funding for youth groups and ask groups to complete an application process. For more information about funding, please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
