Outdoor Education 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 outdoor experience. Teachers also love the privacy and sense of community within our village camps & accommodation. And our tents, tipis and camping pods 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 centres have been sent up with primary schools in mind, offering the camping or glamping experience, with enough comforts to provide a perfect introduction.  

Our Woodland Adventure centre in the West Midlands offers primary schools sole occupancy of the Tipi Village. 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.

Also popular with primary schools is our Brecon Beacons Adventure centre, featuring 12-13 activities during a 4 night programme and a choice of accommodation in tents, tipis (new for 2021) or camping pods. 

For primary school wanting a trip to France, we have a fantastic centre, just 30 minutes from Calais that offers an excellent on-site activity programme, combined with some local educational visits that maximise the cultural experience.

Exclusive to primary and prep schools, you’ll enjoy your own private tipi village in the woods (and be the only school on your camp!) and experience a varied 2- 5 day activity programme from climbing to bushcraft.
