Camp Can Do
Summer Holidays for Teenagers with Special Needs

About Us

Camp Cando is a grass roots voluntary organisation for young people with a complexity of special and behavioural needs.


Every year we give a group of young people from London the opportunity to spend a life enhancing and fun week away from home in the summer.


Our team of helpers ensure an excellent standard of care and attention to meet each the campers' individual needs.


The week provides well deserved respite for the parents and carers and family members of these amazing teenagers.


We are able to offer places to:

Students from the London area with disabilities including but not limited to: Global Developmental Delay, Autism, Down's Syndrome, incontinence, mild learning disabilities and severe learning disabilities.


Remember to check us out on Facebook.




The success of the activities of Camp Cando is reliant on the generous support of our donors.

If you would like to get involved of make a donation please do not hesitate to contact us.

Summer Holidays!

What happens during Camp
Camp runs for a week in August from Sunday to Friday. We pick the students up by minibus from either school or a designated pick up area and drop them back at the end of the week.


A structured week of fun includes day trips to the seaside and the zoo and 3 days on-site with a range of activities, including:

 - outdoor games

- swimminh

-  low ropes

- karaoke

- dressing up

- arts and crafts


The week draws to a close with a BBQ evening, camp fire songs and an awards ceremony. During their week long holiday with us they will experience the freedom of beautiful countryside, and the thrill of fairground rides at the seaside.


Camp is currently held at Carroty Wood, a


St Barnabas Trust Adventure Centre in Tonbridge, Kent.

(see the map below for details)


The centre is located in wonderful woodland with large open play areas and an on-site swimming pool. Accommodation is in the form of shared rooms of no more than 4 campers per room. The accommodation is equipped with a walk in shower.

Info for Parents & Carers

How will Camp Cando know how to look after my child?


We will visit you at home before offering a place and will go through a detailed form with you which covers everything from medical, food requirements and allergies, to fears, night time routines and behaviour plans. We also obtain behaviour plans from schools as supporting documentation.

Helpers are briefed on each camper's special needs and routines at the beginning of the week, with mid-week briefing sessions where new information is shared.

Each night we have 4 carers including a nurse and driver on shift. We have a minimum 1:1 ratio of helpers to campers and a wealth of experience amongst our team.


We appreciate that you will have a lot of questions about who we are, and how we ensure your son/daughter will be happy and safe whilst in our care.
