The Merseyside Children’s Holiday Camp was founded in 1909 by Mr Arthur H. Lee.
The main objective of the camp was to provide holidays for poorer children from Birkenhead and district.
The first arrivals at the new camp were 100 boys from Merseyside who came there on Friday 9th July 1909.
For 75 years the wooden huts of the camp provided holidays for children, until the camp was closed in 1984.
The site is now occupied by Dyserth Falls Resort, formerly Graig Park Hotel & Country Club.
