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.

T:BUC Camps – Applications Workshops

The Education Authority will be running workshops to support groups to help develop their programmes and assist with applications.

Attendance at a workshop is strongly encouraged, as it will allow you to meet and network with other possible applicants, speak directly to members of the T:BUC team, receive support and guidance on programming and good relations resources, and be given support in how to make a good quality application to the T:BUC Camps Programme.

A number of the workshops are face to face, with online options also available.  It is essential that a place is pre-booked.  You can do so through the button below or by clicking here.
