An Oppidan Camp is a dream week for a prep-school child. It incorporates five days of outdoor sports, practical skills, team games, cooking and camping, developed within the context of a programme of super-curricular studies. They are treated like adults, try their hand at a host of new skills and activities, and come away with an increased sense of confidence and perspective about their learning.
The Wild Explorers programme sees the group explore the best wild green spaces London has to offer. With a schedule of activities carefully curated by our experienced team striking a perfect balance between our children’s safety and the creativity of each meticulously planned first-hand experience. We also provide a well-resourced space at Fulham Palace to use as our pick up and drop off point and base for indoor activities such as art, craft, music, and cooking when not on a trip. Children will learn to make their own fresh lunch with our designated camp chef each day. The children’s creations will be showcased each week with a Friday performance that celebrates their first-hand experiences in style.
We truly believe that children are active learners who thrive on a nourishing diet of outdoor and nature-based 'first-hand experiences'. Fulham Palace provides a fantastic location for our day camps, with its inspirational walled garden, woodland dell and our indoor facilities, the spacious and bright Education Centre.
