Kids Adventure

Kids Adventure is a student-led charity that takes vulnerable and underpriviledged children, ages 7-11, from the local area on week-long, non-residential, action-packed activity breaks. We run a Christmas Party Day, one week at Easter and two separate weeks in Summer, during which time volunteers spend invaluable time with a group of disadvantaged children. We pick them up each morning to go on different activities which in the past have included: Warwick Castle, swimming, rock climbing, Drayton Manor and Dudley Zoo.

What makes Kids Adventure unique is that each child receives personal support through our one-on-one scheme where each volunteer is paired with a different child each day, meaning that they can have the very best support and positive encouragement.

Kids Adventure relies on honest, reliable volunteers. You need to have a good sense of fun, be able to get stuck in and not be too serious!
