Camps for Schools

At Circle of Life Rediscovery, we offer bespoke Camps, Outdoor Learning, Activity Days and Forest School from Key Stage 2 - 4 for schools and colleges.

All camps are unique and offer a rich learning experience, a range of activities to challenge, inspire and have lots of fun!

The camps have a strong environmental basis and include nature awareness games, survival and woodcraft skills, music, team-building activities, art, story-telling and night walks. Above all we have fun and get creative.

All our camps are Sussex-based in among the trees. We provide catering and equipment for all activities. View our recent photo gallery of our Lewes New School Camp for inspiration!

"I didn't think that I liked camping but I have underestimated myself. The camp was amazing, I have not only learnt new skills but I have learnt to be grateful about everything around me. I have a new sense of confidence and believe in myself"
