Acorn is one of the most well established school and group adventure trip providers in the UK, with 2017 marking our 35th anniversary! We have a choice of ten exciting Adventure destinations in six countries and have built up an excellent reputation for delivering safe, quality and fun adventure trips that are excellent value for money.
We are passionate about the great outdoors and our activities, camp locations and accommodation options have all been carefully planned to offer you the best possible real outdoor experience at affordable prices.
All of our Adventure Camps in France, Italy, Spain, UK and India, have been selected with their locations in mind. From National Parks to the Mediterranean Sea, we are perfectly placed to offer you the best choice of activity programmes. From sailing and paddle boarding to climbing and caving, we have a trip to suit every school and group!
We believe that a true adventure is more than just the activities we offer. It’s about the whole experience. With this in mind, all of our accommodation options are designed to heighten the overall experience; bringing groups together and teaching life skills. From the traditional tented village to rustic log cabins, our Adventure Camps are set up to celebrate the outdoors whether it be sleeping under canvas or toasting marshmallows on the campfire.
Acorn opens its first Tipi Adventure Camp in the UK this summer!
Come and see for yourselves at one of our Open Days this April. You'll have a guided tour, see our brand new tipis (which we are very excited about!) and hear all about the activity programme, which is exclusive to primary schools.
Our Tipi Adventure Camp is located in Bewdley, next door to the West Midlands Safari Park. Find out more here.
OPEN DAYS 2017
Our Tipi Adventure programmes are 2 nights or 4 nights and include a range of activities from bushcraft skills to target sports, climbing and forest orienteering. Also included is a visit to the West Midlands Safari Park. The real adventure is sleeping in the woods in a real life Tipi and cooking on the campfire! Every child should experience camping in the woods!
We recently enjoyed a trip down memory lane at our 35th anniversary Gala where we shared stories and sang the Acorn Hakka, one of our favourite songs from over the years. There were lots of faces there, past and present with some great stories to share about their times with Acorn. We seem to have touched so many lives in our 35 years and many of our former staff and pupils have gone on to do some fantastic things (having been inspired by their experiences at Acorn, we are told). We've also discovered there are lots of Acorn marriages and babies out there!
Andrew Gardiner, Acorn's founder and Chair, is so proud of Acorn's staff and Party Leaders who have contributed so much to Acorn's success and he would like to thank everyone that has worked hard to make Acorn what it is today.
