Who runs Eastercamp?

Eastercamp is run by Canterbury Youth Services (CYS), a registered Charitable Trust. We have been running Eastercamp and other events like this for over 20 years. We are a Christian based trust providing a positive healthy weekend over Easter for your teenager.

Who looks after my teenager?

Your teenager will attend the event as part of a Youth Group (ask them which group). Outside the infrastructure and activities CYS provides, the Key Leader of your teenager's group is responsible for their general wellbeing while at camp. Eastercamp requires each group coming to have at least 1 leader to 10 young people. Each group also has 2 or more Camp Parents that stay at the group’s camp to look after the site and young people.

What about security and medical emergencies?

24-7 Safety teams patrol the campsite.

While we do take every precaution to keep the event safe, sometimes people get sick or injured. Rest assured we have a full team of experienced Doctors and Nurses on-site 24/7 to deal with any emergency.
