PGL Summer Camps: 50% off for First Timers

Since it was founded in 1957, hundreds of thousands of children have enjoyed A PGL ‘summer camp’ without their parents, trying out new activities and making new friends.

To encourage a new generation of kids to experience PGL for the first time, the company is now offering 50% off all its ‘First Timer’ multi-activity weeks this summer.

The offer – which must be booked by 18 June 2018 – saves up to £319 per child on a week-long residential stay.

Head of Holidays, Steve Hougham says “We understand it is a big thing for a parent to commit to their child’s first holiday away from home. But we know that children gain so much – especially in self-confidence – that it’s worth it, and this special offer makes the decision easier!”

All ‘First Timer’ holidays are just that: holidays exclusively for children who have not experienced PGL ‘unaccompanied’ before. Children who have been on a school trip or family holiday are eligible for the offer.

The half-price offer is on seven-night residential holidays on selected dates this summer at adventure centres in Surrey, Sussex, Wiltshire, the Isle of Wight, Devon, Dorset, Herefordshire, Shropshire and Lincolnshire.

Each is owned and run year-round by PGL, with trained staff taking care of everything from dawn to dusk – and beyond. Single-sex accommodation, all meals, activities every day, equipment, instruction and supervision are all included in holiday prices.

New Bushcraft holiday for kids from PGL

The holiday is offered on 28 July and 4, 11 and 18 August this year.  It costs £559 per child, to include six half days of multi-activity fun as well as Bushcraft sessions, all meals, dormitory accommodation, instruction, equipment and supervision.
