My DS and I are struggling at the moment. He's 14, sporty, intelligent, popular and everyone else thinks he's wonderful but he hates me right now. Everything I say seems to make him angry so I've withdrawn a bit and honestly I have no idea how to try and repair our relationship.
I spoke to him this morning and we both think a week away for him might be a good idea, perhaps at a cricket camp or other residential camp.

If anyone has any recommendations I'd be grateful if you could share them.

Thanks in advance

You could look at a PGL camp? It's not cheap but they do offers for first timers.

My DD13 went last summer for a week. She loved it. They are so busy everyday doing activities... she did go with a friend tho.

If he is interested in Engineering, have you heard of Smallpeice Trust, they run courses at various unis for years 8-12. My year 8 had a great time, will probably go on another next year. Great to get them thinking about uni, meet new people etc

If you can afford it, Camp Suisse is excellent.
Most local sports clubs run summer camps or try a residential watersports camp.

I've never heard of them @yummypancakes but will do some research. Thanks you.
