Why Give?

Making a difference, one child at a time

The Oakes is committed to sharing the Christian message with children and young people through amazing residential camps. This is made possible through generous donations from individuals, churches and trusts whose gifts make up approximately 40% of our income and provide vital core funding.

Camp fees typically cover the cost of the camps themselves, and since all our team are volunteers, this means we can use every gift to really make a difference …


3, 2, 1... Go!

Subsidising camp places

Our prices are already low, but your gifts allow us to provide further discounted camp places through our Holiday Fund. This enables young people to attend who would otherwise miss out on Oakes camps.


Making an Impact

The Impact Team are the young adults who give a year to volunteer with us and make the camps possible. Your gifts help to cover their food, accommodation and training costs.


Improving our facilities

It takes a lot of time and resources to keep our beautiful house and estate looking so good. Your gifts help us to maintain and improve our facilities, and develop exciting new activities for campers to enjoy.
