Our camp programmes with built-in flexibility so that the students and the school staff have time to enjoy the camping experience.

To finish off each day there will be a roaring campfire, where the students can reflect on their experiences of the day and sing songs and finish off with a marshmallow s’more on the fire.

All our meals are cooked and freshly prepared on-site every day and used locally sourced ingredients wherever possible. On every trip, the students will also have the chance to cook their own food, using traditional Bushcraft methods.

We tailor make each trip so prices can vary, depending on factors such as dates and student numbers. The below can be used as a guideline of average price for each residential trip.
