Following the postponement to the final stage of lockdown easing announced by the government on Monday and other guidance issued by the National Youth Association regarding residential camps, we have taken the sad and difficult decision to cancel this summer's Chequer Tree Camp.

We know this is the second year, as a result of the pandemic, that we have had to cancel CTC and it is not a decision we have taken lightly and without a lot of thought and prayer. We know that there will be a great sense of disappointment as a result of this decision.

However, The Family Trust looks forward to hosting CTC events in the near future and to resuming Chequer Tree Camp in the summer of 2022. Look out for more details to follow!

You can now sign up for e-mail updates about Chequer Tree Camp & CTC events!

Thanks for signing up for updates! We will be in touch when we have new information and exciting CTC news to share with you.


Chequer Tree Camp has been run by The Family Trust for over 30 years. It is a summer Christian camp largely attended by children connected to the work of The Family Trust across Maidstone, Medway and Swale.

The camp is currently held at Boughton Monchelsea Primary School, just outside of Maidstone. We welcome children in school years 4-7 for a week of fun, games, the opportunity to make new friends and to learn about the Christian faith. If you would like to know more, please get in touch.
