  1. ** Sadly, because of the Coronavirus crisis the camp will not run in 2020**

    Camp is for children aged 9 to 12 years inclusive and is run by an experienced voluntary organization that is staffed by teachers, and experienced volunteers all of whom are DBS (CRB) checked.

    The camp allows groups of about 75 children to spend 4 days (including 3 nights) in the country. Each of the three nights are spent in tents surrounded by open countryside. The children share 4 person tents, they sleep on roll mats in the cosy inner compartment. Children do not need any special equipment, just sensible clothing, footwear and a sleeping bag (although this can be provided if necessary).

    Please see our website for booking.

Normally we add categories for you when the entry is set up, but you have the option to edit them. Very occasionally some categories have restricted usage and we’ll let you know if we feel there’s a problem.

The categories are tiered with the broadest first. Click on the plus sign till you find the specific categories that best suit your group.

You can add or amend news items, and the date will change automatically, although you may need to go back into the entry to see the revised date.
