Camp Redwood

There is something magical about Camp Redwood. This unique venue provides pupils with the opportunity to get back to basics with outdoor experiences designed to help them develop and grow. 

Camping in bell tents amongst the impressive Redwood trees in the beautiful grounds of Thoresby estate, this residential camp visit really does provide an environment that promotes a digital detox and allows you to immerse yourself in the wonderful outdoors.

We know students make lifelong memories at Camp Redwood but don't just take our word for it. The reviews speak for themselves:

“Since returning, I’ve gained even more respect for the people in my tent for being such good friends to me”
“I was overjoyed when we were told we were going to roast marshmallows around the campfire; they definitely lived up to expectations!”
“Thank you for giving me an amazing, fun experience which will never be forgotten – it has been the best trip yet”.

Our goal is to allow individuals a ‘digital detox’, a chance to experience nature without the modern distractions of screens, whilst developing skills needed back in the classroom.  Activities will focus on resilience, confidence, problem-solving and teamwork.  Our programme of activities is built around what is available in the natural environment, such as shelter building, low-ropes challenges, and roasting marshmallows around a campfire which students will light themselves!  All our activities are designed to encourage team participation and self-reflection.
