Primary School Residential Trips

Outdoor Adventure Trips for Primary Schools

Primary schools have been coming to us for over 35 years and keep on coming back because they recognise the tremendous benefits of the whole camping experience, combined with outdoor adventure. Teachers also love the privacy and sense of community within our village camps. And our tents are surprisingly comfortable! Action packed itineraries and activities have been prepared specifically for primary adventure residentials (KS2 pupils) and are run by staff experienced in working with children who may be on their first adventure away from home.

Our camps have been sent up with primary schools in mind, offering the camping experience, with enough comforts to provide a perfect introduction.  Our standing-height tents have real beds, mattresses and solid floors but retain all the excitement of sleeping under canvas. So it's more like glamping, than camping!

We've recently opened our brand new Woodland Adventure camp in the West Midlands, offering primary schools sole occupancy of the camp. This exciting on-site woodland activity programme has been designed specifically for primary KS2 groups and offers high-quality tipi accommodation, with fixed toilet/shower facilities close by and a designated `night` toilet.

Be at one with nature at our brand new Woodland Adventure Safari Camp, set in the Wyre Forest, so close to the West Midlands Safari Park you can hear the lions roar! Exclusive to primary and prep schools, you’ll enjoy your own private tipi village in the woods (and be the only school on camp!) and experience a varied 2- 5 day activity programme from climbing to bushcraft. A proper woodland adventure! You’ll also visit the West Midlands Safari Park to see the animals, enjoy the rides and do some educational activities, specifically for schools.
Breathe in the fresh mountain air as you paddle on the lake, enjoy breathtaking views from the high ropes course, explore the National Park hills by foot, toast marshmallows on the campfire on the shores of Llangorse lake and kata kanu over to our wild camp to learn bushcraft skills. These are just six of the 17 activities awaiting you at this market leading, exceptional value activity residential programme for schools and groups. Courses also available here include Tough Bushcraft and GCSE PE/BTEC
Hop over the channel to our small, friendly and perfectly formed lakeside adventure camp, conveniently located just two hours from the UK.
