Kings Camps – Portsmouth 2019

Service children’s sporting activities – Kings Camp Portsmouth is back for an 8th year


Two weeks of sports and activity programmes have been organised by The Kings Foundation and discounted by Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity funding.


Kings Camp is the leading provider of holiday sports and activity day camps for children and works closely with the many Naval Service communities across the UK. As a charitable organisation, Kings Camp focuses on the experience of each child attending camp. With inspiring coaches, children experience a wide range of sports and activities whilst making new friends and developing a love for an active, healthy lifestyle.


With 25 years’ experience, more than half a million children already have happy Kings Camp memories; activities include a wide range of sports, socialising, interacting and learning new skills from their experiences. With full use of sports facilities including swimming pool, indoor and outdoor facilities, the inspiring Kings Camps coaches ensure all children are fully involved in the activities.


The camps are for children aged 5 -17 years old and will run from 0815 – 1645 each day (1600 on Friday) from:


Week 1    HMS Temeraire and HMS Collingwood              Monday 22 – Friday 26 July

Week 2    HMS Temeraire and HMS Collingwood              Monday 29 Jul – Friday 2 August


Drop off for all camps is between 0815 – 0845 and pick up is between 1615 – 1700 (1600 on Friday). Please do not drop off or collect after these times.


Each camp can take up to a maximum of 100 children so please book early to avoid disappointment. The normal cost for each week is £187, however each place has been heavily subsidised by both the Kings Foundation (£77) and the RNRMC (£60), so the cost per child is only £60 for the week. If you wish to book a place during the first week and your child(ren) do not break up until the Mon or Tue please speak directly to Kings who will provide a reduced price for week 1. This is a fantastic opportunity for children to mix and enjoy each other’s company whilst enjoying a week of fun and entertainment during the summer holidays.


Payment is required at the time of booking and can be made by credit or debit card. You can also pay by child care vouchers you will just pay £1 to secure your place and then send Kings the vouchers. You will also need to provide your Service Number, rank and place of work.


To book your child(ren) onto the camp, call Molly and the team on 0114 263 2160. If you require further information please do not hesitate to contact WO1 PT Tiny Nash on 9380 22828 / 02392 722828 or e mail 



An extended funding partnership between the Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity (RNRMC) and Kings Camps is about to enable more children and young people from Naval Service families to access sports and activity camps right across the UK and at a significantly subsidised rate of £60 per week. In addition to operating Kings Camps for 1,800 children at 8 Royal Navy bases, Naval Service families can now access Kings Camps at 55 locations across the UK, from Aberdeen to Cornwall.
