Cosy in the Community
Derby Kids Camp is 100% volunteer led and been going for over 35 years. Every year they take 300 kids, who are in need of a break, camping for a week of fabulous fun. The children invited on DKC holidays are nominated by the Derby City schools, rather than chosen by ourselves.
Each school are given a number of children's places and their nominations are based on those children they feel would most benefit from a holiday. Have a look at the programme, go volunteer, you will be entertained and inspired.
In 2016 the Cosy Fund purchased a farm and campsite in the heart of the Peak District to be used as a permanent home for DKC. The purchase ended a year of grave uncertainty for the local children's charity, after the field they have camped on for over 30 years was put up for sale following the death of the previous owner, John Wint. Cosy stepped in and secured the site weeks before camp was due to be built, giving Derby Kids’ Camp the security of a permanent home for many years to come.
