Paws in Tents is an affordable camping holiday where young people with any additional needs can learn how to train their own dog to help support them which helps to improve independence and safety.

At camp, children and their families are able to learn to teach their dogs physical assistance tasks such as picking up dropped items, emotional and autism support tasks such as deep pressure therapy and medical alerts to seizures, hypoglycaemia and other medical states which pose a risk to the young person.

On top of the supportive dog training workshops we have loads of other fun and empowering activities for the young people to do including:

  • Arts and crafts workshops
  • Outdoor activities
  • Sensory play
  • Have a go agility and flyball
  • Artificial campfire (complete with campfire songs, stories, skits and dancing)
  • Disco/ Dance a long

We consider applications from 18 to 25 year olds on an individual basis
