Thriftwood Holiday Camp

Here at Harrow Mencap we are very excited about the potential of running a long weekend residential break during the summer holidays, for young people using our services.  We are looking to take a group of young people to Thriftwood Scout Camp, one of the UK's premier Campsites and Activity Centres in Brentwood Essex.

We can organise fully catered accommodation with an exciting and challenging programme of outdoor activities, tailored to meet your child's requirements.  From team building and development through to personal challenges, our team will ensure your child will make the most out of their stay.

Our aims & goals are:

  • Building bonds and making new friends
  • Offering young people the platform to learn new skills and challenge themselves
  • Providing fun, safe respite for families and young people with disabilities

Facilities at Thriftwood

  • Comfortable residential buildings
  • Private showers and toilets
  • Kitchen and cooking facilities, catering for individual dietary requirements
  • Over 50 options for activities tailored to individual needs
  • On site shop

Big thanks to everyone who has responded to the online survey.  We still need more families to register their interest to help make this happen, so if you haven't completed the survey yet we would really appreciate your feedback.  Here's the link
