ATE is a not-for-profit Educational Trust, with a Governing Council of leaders in the world of education who believe in the value of summer camps. The Council makes sure that keeping children safe, both physically and emotionally, is ATE’s top priority.
The origins of ATE
The Active Training and Education Trust was founded in 1996, as a successor body to the Council for Colony Holidays for Schoolchildren, which provided residential holidays for many thousands of children between 1965 and 1983. ATE was formed by a group of people who had worked with Colony Holidays and who believed strongly in the potential benefits to children and young people of an imaginative, creative and well-run system of residential holidays where people from all schools and backgrounds could meet. ATE was established as an Educational Trust, and it is supported by a Governing Council of representatives from most major educational Associations. Other things we do! For more information about Monitor training, to find our about our bespoke residential weeks and weekends for schools or INSET training on creativity in the classroom, please contact ATE.
Why send a child to summer camp?
Summer camps give children a wonderful break from the stresses of home, school, and commercialism. They get to live some “real childhood”, playing games in the fields and woods, and making new friends while doing so – an opportunity hard to find in the world of 2012. They really relax in a fantastic setting, and have a great holiday week with others their own age from all over Britain, and with young and enthusiastic supervisors. To spend a week away from TVs and computers, playing, laughing and doing lots of varied activities together, is not only enormous fun, it also helps children develop new interests and enthusiasms, also social skills, independence and selfconfidence. Many people who have attended summer camps run by ATE tell us what an important part of their childhood the holidays were, and how much they have helped them grow up and develop confidence.
