Get your children channelling their inner Bear Grylls at the Camp Kernow
Get your children channelling their inner Bear Grylls atthe Camp Kernow eco summer camp. Youngsters aged seven to 14 are invited to head out into the Cornish countryside for up to six days of exciting, eco-friendly activities in the woods, lakes and farmland. Off the grid, kids will get to experience foraging, archery, kayaking and tree climbing without an iPhone in sight. They’ll eat home cooked meals and learn all about sustainable living. Tickets cost from £260. Call 01872 885779 or visit campkernow.org.uk.
It’s easy to hit the high street for your summer wardrobe, but before you click and collect, do your bit for new designers by visiting Curated Crowd.

Soon you’ll be able to shop the showroom for your favourite outfits, get a sneak preview of new collections and save your seat at catwalk shows. Sign up to fund your favourite designer at curated-crowd.com.
