Isle of Wight parents are being offered the chance to send their teenage children on an enriching 3-week Summer holiday camp – including a 2-week residential stay – for just £35.00.

Local deal website The Price is Wight has teamed up with Cowes-based UKSA to offer a 97% discount on the 2019 holiday activity programme, which will include skiing, kayaking, biking and climbing. These transformational youth development programmes – run in conjunction with the National Citizen Service – are normally worth £1,500.

Not only will the 3-week camp offer youngsters the opportunity to try that hand at new activities, it will also include workshops on CVs, career planning, mental health and first aid.
