Active Adventure and Kingham Hill School
Kingham Hill is beautifully situated in the heart of the rural Cotswold landscape, between Oxford, Cheltenham and Stratford-Upon-Avon. The school is surrounded by idyllic rolling countryside in a stunning 100-acre estate surrounded by our own private woodland, where children have a safe place to explore the natural environment. The views in every direction are wonderful as the school is set within England’s largest Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Your children will get a real sense of the great outdoors through a series of bush-craft, outdoor survival, and adventurous outdoor activities, all designed to increase confidence, boost independence, and build teamwork skills. The camp is predominantly outdoors, come rain or shine, however we do have access to the schools brand new indoor rock climbing facility, swimming pool, as well as other indoor space for wet weather days. Yet we often opt to operate under canvas or even a makeshift shelter built from logs, moss, and anything else nature can provide, to give a truly authentic outdoor experience.
