The camp aimed to strengthen team work skills by putting them into groups to compete for an overall winner over the week.

“This is my first time working here at HMS Drake in Plymouth Naval Base; I’m used to working up in Scotland and on cruise liners around the world,” explained Findlay Harkins, site manager for the Kings Camp in Devonport.

“It’s been really good fun here and I’ve been so impressed with the politeness of the children in Plymouth, they have been so well behaved.

“We have something called the ‘Kings factor’ which we promote though all the coaches  running the activities, and it keep everything up to a high energy and high fun level, with all the sports throughout the camp week.”

Kings Camp runs more than three dozen activity camps across the UK each school summer break (plus three camps in South Africa). Youngsters have a busy day ahead of them, running around from 8am until 5pm.

Supported by the Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity, Kings Camp Foundation run sports camps in other Naval Bases during the Easter and Summer holidays.
