So here’s our tribute to the outdoor adventure haven with a mix of archive and recent photos of the plans where so many people had so much fun – and continue to do so.
From treks to memories of a ghost and seasaw rides. It all happened there.
More recently, the Friends of Carlton Camp have, since 2014, been campaigning to see that all children get the chance to go to Carlton regardless of their socio economic background and raises money to enhance the facilities at the centre.
Spokesman Mick Sumpter said: “Kids need adventure and certainly that’s what Carlton offers, along with great memories for life. As a Trustee of Carlton, I believe it’s wonderful place which offers a range of activities that allows children to explore the world outside the classroom.”
