About T:BUC Camps
The T:BUC Camps Programme is a headline action described in the Together: Building a United Community (T:BUC) strategy which was announced by the Northern Ireland Executive in 2013. The relevant strategic aim relating to young people is:
To continue to improve attitudes amongst our young people and to build a community where they can play a full and active role in building good relations.”
The Programme is about building positive relations and long lasting friendships among young people across all parts of the Northern Ireland community. Camps must therefore bring diverse groups together to get to know each other, try new experiences and help build longer term relationships between young people.
Good Relations learning must be at the heart of every Camp.
