Has Your Childs School Booked A Camp With Us?
Then The Outdoors People are very excited to be coming to your childs school later this year! This page should answer a lot of the questions you might have about our camps and your school staff should be able to give you any other information you might need.
Prefer to have this information in a printable format?
Who are the outdoors people?
The Outdoors People provide outstanding camping experiences for school children across the UK. We have many years of experience creating and delivering our camps and are passionate about delivering the very best camps we can.
"All the staff members were outstanding and the camp was fully inclusive for all our children"
What do our camps involve?
Lots of stuff! At every overnight camp children will work together to put up their tents, play energetic games with the giant kin-ball, toast marshmallows, sing songs around the campfire and have an amazing night under the stars with their friends.
During the day we have a huge range of exciting educational activities and challenges for schools to choose from. Children might learn to make fires in the wild, take part in the bush-tucker challenge, develop life and team skills, learn first aid, purify muddy water into tasty hot chocolate, and much more. Full information on all of our exciting activities can be found here.
"The children were all engaged in the activities and the delivery was excellent."
WHAT DO THE CHILDREN NEED TO BRING?
There's an interactive version of the packing list below!
Old clothes are best with some spares just in case! Please remember that there’s a good chance of stuff getting wet, muddy or stepped on and it’s definitely worth making sure that everything has a name in it to reduce lost-property at the end of the camp.
