Furthermore, their confidence will grow, knowing their parents are nearby – ideal for the younger children. Set in the woodland of Wormsley Estate, this is a family camp that is enjoyable for all!

The Swedish ‘right to roam’ has been built into their constitution since 1994 – many Swedes enjoy every opportunity they can to get their kids outdoors.

In 2019 we will be taking an epic journey down Lake Stora Le. On this trip we will be picking up bushcrafting skills, canoe skills and certainly enjoy a complete break from any tech that we’ve grown so accustomed to. Moreover, there are ample opportunities for stargazing, foraging for wild berries but also for quiet time absorbing the breathtaking Swedish nature.


Summer Medieval Camps

Our summer camps challenge any preconceptions of summer camps for kids.

The 2019 summer camps are all set to get your kids outdoors, make new friends (even of the four-legged kind!) and above all experience a summer they won’t forget. The kids will learn how to camp in the woodlands next to the river Rother, just a few miles away from the famous Bodiam Castle. Alongside refreshing swims and water games, your kids will also learn basket weaving, clay pot making or pick up the basics of falconry! Furthermore, we will teach them about starting a fire for outdoor cooking and preparing their own meals. They will be looking forward to the evenings spent around a campfire, with hot cocoa and marshmallows, catching up on the events of the day.
