Six children from diverse backgrounds across Britain are brought together on a summer camping trip where they will discover and debate what it means to be British.
Here the entire Brit Camp story is shown in one episode, from the introduction of the teenagers with a glimpse at their home lives, to their experiences on the trip as their notions of identity and Britishness are challenged.
Throughout the trip, the teenagers work with historian and social cohesion expert Dr Nick Barratt on a range of activities designed to uncover their national identity.
The six children, who may never have met in ordinary circumstances, have their initial prejudices challenged, discover what life is like on a farm, and explore the issues which unite and divide them.
