*Children aged 15-18 are still welcome to attend but we cannot guarantee others of the same age will also be there. 

We will be facilitating our FIRST EVER trip to the Kingswood Activity Centre in Dearne Valley!

(Please note: this trip was originally set to go ahead in 2020 but due to the COVID-19 restrictions it was moved to August 2021. Given the ever changing nature of the pandemic and it's restrictions we are hopeful this will go ahead but we will keep a close eye on any changes.)


At the Kingswood centre children and their parents are able to spend the weekend meeting others who understand their journey, build essential confidence skills and just have some fun! 

Children with alopecia, along with their parents and siblings, can join Alopecia UK for a weekend of nature and adventure activities all within the contemporary purpose built accommodation and high quality learning facilities at the Kingswood Centre, Dearne Valley. 

With fantastic indoor and outdoor activity facilities surrounded by the beautiful countryside of South Yorkshire with a purpose built watersports lake, Dearne Valley offers something for everyone.

In family groups you will stay in either the 'Eco Pods' or the 'Adventure Lodges' and take part in our specially created timetable of activities.
