Our Founder: Hollie's Journey

Meet Hollie, the visionary founder of 3RD Space Kids. Her journey began at a summer camp in upstate New York, where she embraced diverse roles, from teaching to living with energetic 10-11-year-olds. Her devotion culminated in her role as Operations Manager, overseeing camp operations year-round.

However, when Hollie returned to the UK in 2019, she found the magic she experienced in the US camp to be a rare commodity. The UK lacked spaces where children could have fun, learn, and grow. Drawing from her blend of US and UK backgrounds, Hollie decided to bring American-style camp spirit to the UK.

With a deep understanding of creating a vibrant camp atmosphere while maintaining educational benefits, she founded 3RD Space Kids. Hollie's commitment to every child, every day, is the driving force. She aims to inspire children and believes in the power of a supportive community to advocate for young people and support parents on their journey. J

 

oin Hollie in her mission to create a community that goes beyond camps – it's a journey of belonging, learning, and lifelong impact.

The Inspiration

The inspiration for 3RD Space Kids didn't come solely from Hollie's experiences; it was rooted in her deep understanding of the positive impact such a 'third space' could have on children. One of the most significant sources of inspiration was her younger brother.

 

Hollie witnessed firsthand how her brother's time at camp had shaped him into a confident, sociable, and connected individual. The camp environment had nurtured his self-esteem, developed his social skills, and sparked a sense of adventure that stayed with him throughout his life.

This transformation was not unique to her brother alone. It was a common thread running through the lives of countless children who had the privilege of experiencing the magic of camp.

 

Hollie's mission became clear: to provide this transformative experience to children in the UK and create a 'third space' where they could thrive, grow, and make memories that would last a lifetime.
