Kings Camps at Portsmouth- HMS Collingwood
Since 1991, we’ve strived to create the best summer camps and sports camp experiences for children. From the moment they arrive on camp to the last activities of the day, our brilliant Red Tops are committed to ensuring every Kings Camper is engaged, active, having fun and learning together. Kings Camps is working in partnership with the Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity (RNRMC) to create opportunities for children of service families to get active and have fun in the school holidays. Our Multi-Active, Teen Active and Rookie Academy programmes are available for children of serving personnel during the Easter and Summer holidays. The partnership means places are subsidised.10% early booking ends Feb 28th
Sports and activity camps that get the best out of every child!
RedTots is a fun, active, development programme for 3 – 4s to encourage a love for being active. Launching in four cities this summer, the hour-long sessions are the perfect way for you to get active, quality time with your pre-schooler’s.
Our Multi Active Programme is designed to get children active, having fun and learning together through a week of sports and active games. A typical day includes sports and activity sessions, time to socialise and team challenges.
Older teens attending our Rookie Academy will enjoy sports and active games, and developing leadership skills. The Rookie Academy is a great career starter, and a chance to get away from screens for a few hours!

Amazing Easter Camp as always - thank you
Great camp as always - my 12 year old has been coming since he was 5 and still loves coming back. Varied Days, lots of fun and great enthusiasm.
A great activity camp which was throughly enjoyed by my daughter
My daughter had a fantastic time and got so much out of the activities. She made new friends and came home each day very happy. She found the Red Shirts a great bunch and really enjoyed their tutoring over the 4 days.
Best week of his life
Our son had such an incredible time - the variety of activities kept him super busy and he thought all the camp staff were really lovely. In his own words 'best week of his life'.
My daughter Arya has loved Kings Camp since she started at the holiday camps at Blue Coat School. The coaches are absolutely amazing and really look after the children and ensure they have a fantastic time. She loves the variety of different games she has the opportunity to participate in and of course the swimming. she looks forward to going every time and always comes home with a smile on her face. I cannot recommend this Camp enough!
My boys loved their Kings Camp adventures over the Easter
I highly recommend kings camps - my boys come home full of stories of what they have done during the day and they are shattered but very happy. They love the red tops and I feel relaxed knowing my boys are left in safe hands.
Sam had the best time ever!

My 9 year old son has been attending Kings Camp since last summer and he absolutely loves going. He had so much fun, made friends and learn to swim better. He can't wait for summer camp. Thank you from a very happy mum.

My son LOVED his week at Chester - the variety of activities was fantastic and gave children the opportunity to try new sports! Thank you.
Excellent active club, friendly team
Staff and the manager Bronny all very friendly and welcoming. Boosted my son’s morale when he got a certificate for trying hard in swimming, loved how active it is and playing with new friends.
Feedback from my children - it's a fun and active camp!! I enjoyed finding new games I like such as badminton! I enjoyed playing with other groups! Feedback from parent - great organisation and staff friendly, energetic and welcoming! My children love Kings Camp and have recommended to their friends!!
Engaging, Friendly, Professional & Encouraging Sports Camp
The setup on arrival was very professional, and the staff were super friendful, helpful and you felt secure leaving your child in their care. My daughter is not the most sporty but she sure enjoyed elements of each day, and the instructors made sure each child felt involved and were very engaging and encouraging. At the end of it my daughter said she would love to go back in the summer. Overall I was extremely impressed and would happily recommend Kings Camps.
Consistently a great experience
This was the second Kings Camp that our 8 year old has attended. He was so keen to come back after last summer that when the opportunity came up for an Easter holiday session we jumped at the chance. He’s had another great week of activity supported by excellent staff at an outstanding location. We can’t ask for much more!
