Course Overview

Our General English + Outdoor Adventure Camp course will give students the chance to challenge themselves to become more independent while immersed in nature.

While on the course, our partners at CAMPFIRE WILD ADVENTURES will teach students to safely find a place to set up their camp for the night. They will learn how to construct shelters, build their own campfire, on which they will cook their evening meal, and spend the night camping in the beautiful setting of Great Tew Park.

The course is designed to give students the opportunity to learn outside of the classroom, use their English in real-life situations, and gain skills to become more resilient and independent. Giving young people the opportunity to try new experiences, while supervised in a safe environment, will give them much more confidence to face challenges in their own lives.
