BRINGING ADVENTURE AND THE RESIDENTIAL EXPERIENCE TO YOUR SCHOOL GROUNDS

Our School Camps are an ideal introduction to a residential experience away from home whilst still in familiar surroundings. Teachers have less to organise and most importantly, parents have the comfort of knowing their children are safe and just down the road.

We will bring all the tents, the activity equipment and fire pit with us for toasting Marshmallows. Allowing the children to be part of putting together their own camp is part of the Allnatt School Camp experience. When the camp is ready we have the Opening Ceremony! No camp is complete without your very own school flag. We will provide you with a blank flag before camp, then it’s up to you and your children to decorate it as you wish. You can theme it, get each child to draw part of it, or help them with the design. Either way, your flag will fly over your camp for the duration.

summer camping activity

Based on a traditional camping holiday, this camp will focus on the fun parts of camping. We send out a blank flag to every school in advance of the camp. It’s up to you and your children to decorate it as you wish. You can theme it, get each child to draw part of it, or help them with the design.

The first job is to raise a billowing flag to fly above the camp, before an important part of camping – putting up the tent. Children will learn the do’s and don’ts of successfully putting up a tent, from tightening guy ropes, to pegging out groundsheets.

Sight, smell and hearing are the focus of Lovin’ Outdoors, encouraging the children to enjoy the camp and outdoor environment. After dinner, a range of exciting games and challenges await, before a roaring fire is lit. Gathering round the flickering flames, the group shares traditional camping stories and songs before heading to sleep in their bell tents for the night.

The morning arrives to a chorus of exercise before breakfast. A variety of teambuilding games challenge the children with fun activities, before they learn to make fires using traditional methods with bread making alongside this.

Lunch is followed by the appearance of paper and string, the group experience a traditional camping activity of kite making. On holiday, taking down the camp is as important as putting it up, and groups work together to deconstruct the camp. A final ceremony will see the flag lowered, closing another amazing camp.

Building on the theme of working together, this camp will take the children on a journey, starting as working by themselves and in small groups, completing the camp as one team working together.

Weaving a theme of “team” throughout, the children’s time starts with the discovery of the camp’s beginnings, a flagpole standing tall. We send out a blank flag to every school in advance of the camp. It’s up to you and your children to decorate it as you wish. You can theme it, get each child to draw part of it, or help them with the design.

After raising the flag to fly proudly above the camp, the children break into smaller groups to set up their accommodation for the night. Bell tents are raised, with children learning the value of working together as they help each other to construct their camp.

An ethos of working together permeates the camp. Children are engaged in a series of fun and exciting games that stimulate their imagination.

After dinner, excess energy is siphoned off into a variety of team games, before a roaring fire is lit, and the children group together to share stories and songs before bed.

The next morning finds a variety of teambuilding exercises moulding the children into teams. Fire and breadmaking utilise skills of listening and encouragement to work as teams to create crackling fires and delicious bread. Paints, brushes and paper bring the group together for a team picture, with children identifying their favourite parts of an exciting camp.

Step through the doors of your school, embark on a journey of historical discovery and find yourself in the centre of the Stoneage Camp! With the flag fluttering on it’s tall pole, stories are woven into the fabric of the camp.

To survive the Stone Age, it’s inhabitants need a place to rest their head after a weary day of using senses, agility and speed, and constructing the cave-tents gives them a welcoming abode to call their own. As evening draws in, a mighty fire roars at the centre, bringing the camp’s community together for the sharing of stories and songs.

A tribe needs to work together to survive the difficult environment and working together to solve a variety of challenges, they begin to mould into a team. Fires and food are needed, and the tribe splits to learn traditional methods of firelighting, passed down through generations. Scrumptious, yet simple bread is created, with flour ground, and other ingredients added, before cooking over a crackling fire.

Bringing themselves together once more, the skilled and capable tribe create cave paintings to commemorate their favourite moments of the camp, foraging for colours and discussing their plan.

Finally, time catches up to our weary tribe, and their elders come to take them back, and the fluttering flag finds itself moving down the pole, marking the end of an unforgettable experience.
