Active Adventure and Kingham Hill School
This adventure camp in Oxford is based at Kingham Hill school. Our children’s Active Adventure camps are for children aged from 6 to 14 years and have a wide range of outdoor fun activities for kids to enjoy during the school holidays.
Kingham Hill is beautifully situated in the heart of the Cotswolds, 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 woodland, where children have a safe place to explore. 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 outdoors through orienteering, bush-craft and outdoor activities, all designed to increase confidence, boost independence, and build teamwork skills. The Camp is predominantly outdoors, come rain or shine, we do have access to the school sports hall for wet weather days but we often opt to operate under canvas or even a makeshift shelter built from logs, moss, and anything else nature can provide.
Drop Off – 9:00am Pick Up – 5:00pm (Mon – Fri)
