In striving to reduce the carbon footprint I do not produce printed brochures. All information needed can be found on this website so please feel free to print off any information required.
Please note that a Teenbratcampuk camp is not an activity holiday with specific activities but a therapeutic programme

We are based in the UK Location and are the only ones (outside of America) that offer this service for families and their teens.
I run camps in the UK and Australia Australian Programme 2015
Teenbratcampuk offers sustainable solutions to families struggling to manage young people with problems. It can be effective for both male and female young people of different ages, economic status and cultural backgrounds and also for their families.
I do not associate your young person as being a "BRAT" and there are no "BRATS" or "BAD KIDS" on my camps.
Teens on my camps could best be described as "good teens who are making bad decisions and wrong choices".
Teen camps are especially helpful to 13 -17 year old troubled teens who may struggle with a variety of emotional and behavioural issues.
I also run a private "One to One" camp for 10 to 21 year olds (minimum 7 days) which are designed to work exclusively with your young person where no other young person will attend at the same time. It is designed for those who may have difficulty in group situations or for those who have specific issues including low self esteem and/or no confidence. The all inclusive price will include a full written report, rental of camping equipment and food. Dates available upon request.
All camps are a minimum of 7 days and run from Sunday to Saturday inclusive Dates 2014/15.
I strive to let teens learn as much as possible from the consequences of their actions as I feel that a lesson learned through hands-on experience is far more valuable than compliance with a rule established by an authority figure. I know that teenagers can be heavily influenced by their peers in both positive and negative ways so therefore I only have small numbers up to a maximum of 4 on group camps

As we know, teens/ young adults do not come with an in-depth instruction manual which can be used to refer to from time to time and at times of challenging behaviour, therefore, after indentifing a lack of specialist help and support for teens, parents and families in the UK, I started Teenbratcampuk.
I have over 14 years experience in helping teenagers and young adults with life skills coaching, mentoring and mediation. I have a compassionate approach and the ability to provide workable solutions to real life problems. I have adapted the best of todays theories and therapies when working with teenagers and am firm but fair and use a combination of empathy with a straight talking approach.
Getting specialist help for 13 -17 year old teens/ young adults, their parents and families in the UK is often a frustrating and emotionally draining endeavor. Very few parents have any idea of where, when, and how to get appropriate help for their teen Handbook for Parents.
I am a Teen Behavioural Counsellor/ Consultant specialising in working with teenagers/ young people (including those with ADHD/ADD) and their families with behavioural and emotional issues on our innovative forward thinking programme, which are all tailored to the needs of your young person.
Every teen is viewed as a unique individual with specific needs and I am with your teen 24 hours a day while they attend the programme, from the moment they arrive to the moment they leave.
At Teencampuk I share my learned skills, my techniques and my ways in relating to young people with a straight and no nonsense approach which has benefited me in my different roles in life of being an Adult, a father, and a parent /step parent, a Counsellor, a Mentor and a Mediator.
I help teens and their families who are willing to accept help in dealing with the issues at home in a more positive and constuctive way. I work with teens out of their normal environments and out of their comfort zones. I use a flexible and creative approach which can develop trust and enable a willingness to discuss problems, issues and where your teen will have time to look at themselves and reflect on their behaviour and start to learn from it.
In general terms, the young people's time could be taken up by some wild camping, hiking, beach combing, or fishing with plenty of time to talk and reflect, interacting with others and myself. The therapeutic element is an ongoing process and is not set out at specific times.Each camp is specifically designed to benefit each individual young person.
86% of families and young people say that attending our programme has been a very positive experience Testimonials.
