Exeter Student Volunteers (ESV) are now recruiting for their flagship project, Summer Adventures. The project consists of a two-week activity camp run by a group of student volunteers during the summer holidays in August. The two weeks are split to provide activities for different age groups, the first week consists of a 5-day camp for 8–11 year olds and the second, a residential camp for 12-15 year olds. The aim of the project is to give young carers a respite from their caring responsibilities and is incredibly rewarding for both the young carers and student volunteers. The weeks involve a number of arts and craft activities, outdoor games and day trips, all lead by the student volunteers.
