Summer Camp

This Summer there will be a two week Summer Camp full of fun activities fit for families! Residents will host a range of different activities from a family cook pancake making session to a science kid’s trade school and more!

Barking and Dagenham is full of young families and beautiful green spaces for children to explore. We have three Every One Every Day shops where we have met lots of families excited to start new projects in the borough together – including a number of parents interested in learning more about alternative ways to care for and help children learn.
