Why not tailor your child’s experience by including one of our specialist options?


Our Trailblazers programme is perfect for motivated, energetic
teens who are looking for an Internship experience that will
provide the skills and the confidence they need to succeed.
Throughout the course, our courageous young leaders attend
a series of workshops helping them with leadership, delivery
techniques and vocal projection, before progressing onto practical
work and shadowing a full-time Camp Leader to apply their skills
first hand. Whilst it is, of course, invaluable experience for anyone
aspiring to work with children, this programme is not just for
those who are looking to work in education; the suppportive and
structured environment is tailored specifically to help teenagers
develop the confidence and skills to navigate their own path. Each
Trailblazer receives an internal award to recognise their skills on
successful completion of the course. Please note this programme is not available at our The Mount School York venue.
