Residential Opportunities and Camps

Residential Opportunities and Camps

Camping SmilesOffer your young people their first residential opportunity in a safe and adventurous environment.All our residentials will provide young people with new experiences and the opportunity to enjoy and achieve in a variety of tasks and settings. Also, many of the tasks have been designed with National Curriculum links within their delivery. The Adventure Team will provide the activities, tents and sleeping mats, food and staffing for the event (school staff will be required to support young people throughout the residential). All the young people need to bring is appropriate clothing for outdoor activities, a sleeping bag and pillow and bags of enthusiasm.
Each camp costs approximately £30-40 per child and transport can be arranged through our Why Nott? Transport scheme.

Wollaton Park Camp KS1 Camp

The children and staff enjoyed it so much. It was so wonderful to see the kids out there in the wild! – Sneinton Primary

This opportunity will give some pupils in your school their very first experience of being away from home over night without their families and has proved exceptionally successful for many years.
Set in a safe walled garden in the 500 acre grounds of the recently refurbished 16th Century Wollaton Hall and Deer Park (and used in the recent The Dark Night Rises Batman film), the camps offer a group of pupils (up to 60 per night) this initial overnight experience with team building, forest schools, creative storytelling and environmental and historical education activities in the Park and Hall Museum, plus toasting marshmallows over an open fire. All this in the space of just 24 hours!

Newstead Abbey KS2 Camps

[We] really enjoyed the camp this year and had a wonderful time. We would like to return next year!” – Glenbrook Primary

Following on from the hugely popular Wollaton Camps, the Adventure Team has devised the next stepping-stone – The Newstead Abbey Camps!
Set in the gardens and parkland of Newstead Abbey, once home to the notorious poet Lord Byron, the camp gives participants new adventurous experiences that are a step up from those offered at Wollaton. These sessions can include climbing, archery, team-building/orienteering and new literacy and history activities in the Abbey and grounds.
Newstead Camps are scheduled for the first half of the Summer term and September each year and are aimed at Years 4-6. Schools can also ‘team up’ with each other and bring mixed groups from each school up to the maximum of 60 pupils per night.
