This is one of the headline actions of the Together: Building a United Community Strategy published in May 2013.
Beginning in summer 2015, the programme provided a range of opportunities for young people aged 11 to 19 across Northern Ireland to come together to build positive relationships across what have become divided parts of our community. The Camps are about challenging historic positions, encouraging debate and discussion and providing a way for young people to get to know each other, try new experiences, have fun and help to build longer term relationships. Camps must be delivered on a cross-community basis.
The programme is funded through The Executive Office and administered by the Education Authority.
The T:BUC Camps Programme has specific measurable outcomes which are completed at each camp. These are drawn from the overall T:BUC priorities.
114 camps received funding in 2017/18 and details of these programmes can be found below:
