Sleep Away Camps
(for children 8-14 years old)
Our sleep away camps take place at Gather Green, in a family run farm situated just outside the historic city of Canterbury. Our camp is on a 6 acre meadow surrounded by organic farmland and ancient woodland. The fauna includes buzzards, kites and sparrow hawks, partridge and pheasant, rabbits and hares as well as a whole variety of song birds. An ideal place for a child to learn and explore in the changing seasons.
Outdoor adventureOur passionate and vibrant team encourage the children to connect with and celebrate their natural environment. This means getting out and exploring the woods, fields, farms, streams, rivers and ponds to learn from and through nature.
Living in harmonyWe inspire our campers to become independent and resourceful young people who work with their natural environment. They harvest their own meals from the farm, prepare them in our kitchen to be cooked on the campfire or in the cob oven.
The arts inspired by natureInspired by outdoor adventures, professional artists teach the children how to knit, weave, mould, sculpt, carve, paint and build using natural materials. The camp ends with a musical performance inspired by their adventures across the week.
A team inspired by natureOur team of experienced and inspirational mentors bring a sense of joy and dedication to their role. We work tirelessly to ensure all children on camp make the most of their time with us.
