Join in with Max's Big Camp Out

On Saturday 27th March 2021, to mark one year of Max’s epic challenge, children across the world are invited to join Max’s Big Camp Out! It could be outdoors if you have a garden, or indoors in a home-built den, with cushions, blankets etc.

"I’d like to raise awareness that many children across the globe have found lockdown and Covid tough to cope with. At the beginning of my camp out I was focussed on my friend Rick, but as I reach one year in the tent, and it’s coincided with Covid, I really understand what it’s like to be isolated from your friends. We all understand why it’s been necessary, but some young people have found it really tough going." - Max, 11
