History
The Bell Brothers Summer Camp was started by Martin and Graham Bell at Harrogate in 1988. In the mid-90s, it was moved to Hillingdon and then re-located a few years later to Wycombe Summit. Between 1998 and 2002, a northern camp was also held - at Rossendale.

In 1998, Graham Bell retired from the camps. Between 1997 and 2000, Martin ran the camps in conjunction with Malcolm Erskine and the British Ski Academy.

After the Wycombe fire in 2006, the camp was moved to Southampton, in 2007.
In 2013, Spenser Pession took over from Martin Bell as head coach and administrator of the camp.
