Why Camp Cooper is a Top Experience this Summer:

Image of Summer Camp in Scotland for UK & International Students• Camp Cooper is a highly rewarding and fun summer experience. Students (campers) make new friends, learn new skills, and create memories which will last a lifetime. We build our programme around individual choice and group activities to help our campers grow in confidence, develop trust and build strong relationships. 

• At Camp Cooper, our staff to camper ratio is less than 1:4, and our staff training programme is second to none. Camp Cooper staff members are warm, friendly, creative, talented and keen to share their interests and skills with our campers. We carefully select those who have the enthusiasm, patience and passion needed to create a summer of fun, laughter and memories which our campers will never forget.

• At Camp, the staff's first priority is always the safety and happiness of each child. We know your first time away at Camp as a camper (or a parent) can create some nerves but our staff are trained and experienced in facilitating friendships, dealing with homesick campers and creating the craziest of activities which will have everyone laughing in minutes.

• Safety is our number one priority at Camp Cooper. We work hard all year to make sure that Camp Cooper is fun, action packed and safe. We only accept the highest standard from our staff, activities and location.


Excellent Facilities:
Campers stay at Ardvreck School which is the perfect spot to spend your summer - there are forests to explore, a swimming pool, sports fields, tennis courts, chill out areas, arts & craft studios, and a stage for any budding performers.

Images of International Summer Camp UK - Camp Cooper• Our campers are what makes Camp Cooper special. The spirit, ethos and community at Camp attracts children from around the world who are full of enthusiasm, fun, want to make new friends and try new activities.

• The foundation of our Camp community begins with our cabin groups. Campers are divided into cabins with others of the same age and gender, and a dedicated Camp Counsellor who cares for them during their time at Camp as well as organising fun cabin activities.

• Campers enjoy the majority of their day doing activities, eating and working together as a cabin group. We ensure camper's time at Camp is positive through strong role models, support & encouragement and ensuring to keep an eye on the first time campers who may be missing home.
