Wild Summer Camp

30th July 2018 - 17th August 2018

Have a wild time this summer with campfires, wild art, bushcraft and den building (for children aged 8 to 13 years).

Den-gineering Monday
Set up camp in the heart of the forest by building a den. Light your own fire with fire steels and toast marshmallows. Spend a fun-filled afternoon with woodland games around the wild woods at the camp.

Wild Fun & Games Tuesday
After a morning of wild games across our meadows and woods build a cooking fire to make campfire doughnuts and other tasty fire-cooked treats. Sculpt amazing clay creations, make muddy, messy tree trolls and create your own paints to decorate a woodland mask. Make your own outdoor games, including giant willow hoopla and twangball.

Wild Wood Wednesday
Have a go with our bushcraft tools to make tent pegs, beads and wild-wood jewellery. Get building and designing with massive sandcastles and micro-dens, complete with flowing rivers and moats.

Wild Food Thursday
Have an outdoor feast around the campfire with hot dogs, campfire doughnuts and popcorn. Have fun with woodland games, including the blindfold rope trail, slackline and camo-hide-and-seek. Chill-out in the afternoon making your own refreshingly fruity “mocktail”.

Wild Adventure Friday
Set out on an adventure, taking the mysterious hidden tracks into the heart of our wild woods and building huge dens out of wood, leaves, mud and natural materials. Have lunch around the campfire and enjoy an afternoon of adventurous woodland games.

Have a wild time this summer holiday with campfires, bushcraft, wild art, den building and much more! Our summer camps are the perfect way to have a fun-filled holiday.

About our Camps
Wild Camps at Painshill are glorious, totally outdoor days spent in the forest and landscapes of Painshill – running, climbing, playing, making friends and developing practical woodland skills. We spend all day, every day outside, throughout the year, whatever the weather – and we love it! Just remember to bring lots of appropriate outdoor clothing and a big lunch. We have several contingency plans for rain or cold weather to make sure all attendees stay warm and safe, including our big outdoor shelter, tarps and mobile shelters, spare clothes and lots of hot chocolate and warming treats round the fire. An exciting programme of fun activities and themes are set for each day but we are responsive to young peoples’ interests, capabilities and needs, as well as encouraging child-led play and experiences. A big part of our camps is spent encouraging friend making and team work, so don’t worry if you are coming by yourself, there will be lots of opportunities for you to make friends.

Our camps our run by our highly experienced Education Team who spend the rest of the year leading outdoor school visits, Forest School, youth group activities and birthday parties. Our team are experienced in working with lots of different children, age groups and needs. Our team is First Aid trained, with specific training for children and the outdoors. If you have any questions about our camps, activities or if your child has any specific needs please contact us: education@painshill.co.uk
