What's it like?

This wonderful adventure in the woods combines the magic and adventure of sleeping and dining in giant tipis, with a wide range of forest activities. There's even time to visit the neighbouring West Midlands Safari Park (next door), included in the price of the trip. 

It's an adventure like no other, with your own exclusive Tipi Camp in a private woodland, offering an authentic outdoor adventure with a range of forest activities and all the comforts you need for younger groups. With your own exclusive camp, this is an adventure just for your school allowing you a genuine opportunity to bring your class together for team building and the best childhood experience ever- a proper adventure in the woods! 

Days are spent enjoying bushcraft activities such as fire lighting, shelter building and camp crafts, climbing, target sports, an adventure blind trail, forest orienteering and giant initiative. 

Evenings are spent cooking marshmallows around the campfire and enjoying a range of activities and games.

You will also enjoy either a full day or half a day at the West Midlands Safari Park (depending on whether you choose a 2 or 4 night programme) with an education programme on offer as well as the chance to meet the animals and enjoy the theme park. 

An exciting part of this adventure residential is the chance to sleep in a Tipi! Your class will have your own private Tipi Village which has four giant tipis for the children and private tipi accommodation for teachers (with proper beds). Close to the tipis is a toilet and shower block, with private facilities for adults. The camp accommodates from 30 to 100 people and you can choose to stay for 2 or 4 nights.

Your own exclusive Tipi Village

What could be more exciting for children than to sleep in a real life Tipi in the woods? This forest adventure is all about connecting children with nature and we can't think of any better way than sleeping under the stars in a real life Tipi, in a Tipi Village, with all of their friends. 

This unique adventure offers your school exclusivity of your own cosy little village making this the perfect residential for schools seeking a personal experience.

Accommodating up to 100 people (in two separate villages), each private village has five giant tipis and three smaller tipis for Party Leaders. Separately we have Acorn staff tents close by and fixed toilet and shower facilities, which include private Party Leader toilets and individual lockable shower cubicles.

There is a sheltered area for dining, with fire pit, offering an authentic camping experience and allowing for all weather dining! The village has an earthy, natural feel with tipis surrounded by woodland and timber buildings. Each tipi has proper flooring and comfortable floor mats for children. Party Leader tipis have raised beds. 

This is our first Woodland Adventure in the UK, with plans in place to open more. Our aim is to make the camping outdoor adventure experience more accessible and appealing to primary aged groups by offering comfortable Tipi accommodation, fixed onsite facilities, a mature and experienced staff team to work with the group, exclusive accommodation for primary schools and an activity programme tailored to suit younger children. This location was chosen due to its close proximity to the much loved West Midlands Safari Park, which is included in the programme.

Al fresco dining & campfire nights

Meals are served in the sheltered dining area, in the heart of your Tipi Village, by our catering team. With years of experience in catering for young people, all meals will be child friendly and healthy, wholesome food. One night will involve the children preparing and cooking their own meal as part of the bushcraft safari experience and there will be regular campfire nights and opportunities to toast marshmellows. Our staff will dine with the children each night and put on evening activities. We like to get to know our groups and the small nature of this camp gives full opportunity for staff to engage with pupils and teachers, ensuring the best possible experience for the whole group.
