School Camps

Camping is a great way for children to explore the outdoors, the excitement of sleeping in one of our Wooden Glamping Pods with their school friends adds to the whole Oaker Wood Experience.

We have 2 completely separate Camping Villages, both set amongst mature trees and positioned in a beautiful secluded spot overlooking the sun setting over the Welsh mountains. Designed to give a wilderness feel without removing too many of your creature comforts.

accommodation

Accommodation is in Wooden Glamping Pods each sleeping between 4 and 8 on bunk beds. Pods have electric lighting and heaters for the colder months. Winding paths in the Beaches Village, lit by fairy lights at night lead through the trees to each Pod.

Each Village has a covered communal dining area where you can opt for catered/self catered or a mixture of the two. All cooking equipment & crockery is provided together with a barbecues, gas oven, microwave & toaster for cooking.

At the heart of each Glamping Village is our fire circle, with fixed seating allowing plenty of room for your group to sit around the fire. Toasting marshmallows, singing camp fire songs and telling ghost stories all make great memories of Oaker Wood Camp.

Barbecue Hut

We also have a wooden chalet style Activity Hut which can be used for evening activities and games and quizes in wet weather.

Franksbridge School - March 2017

Our Year 3 children loved their stay at Oaker Wood, as did the staff! It was fabulous to see them all getting stuck into the various activities laid on and getting so much out of it. You truly have a magical place. We loved it.

John Westwood - Wyche Primary School - Oct 16

I just wanted to say thank you for a fantastic 24 hours at Oakerwood. Our Year 6 thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and now have a new found appreciation for crate stacking, tree climbing, rafting and quad-biking. They went home this afternoon very tired, very hot but very happy!

Michaela De Barr- Wigmore Primary School

I just wanted to thank you and your team for our fabulous trip last week to you. I cannot say enough how your team bent over backwards to ensure our diabetic child could access all of the activities. A particular thanks to Mick who worked so hard with her to get her to have the best two days of her life, it really was an incredible experience for her. All of the staff were fantastic and made it enjoyable for everyone.

We thoroughly enjoyed our action packed 2 days stay at Oaker Wood. Great staff and exhilarating activities.

Moor Park Prep School, Ludlow

I am not a camper. I find it tricksy! However, the staff at Oakerwood were amazing. Friendly, supportive and genuinely good fun to be around. I have been so impressed with the "can do" attitude and positive atmosphere. Thank you very much. The activities are well organised and great fun but it's the people who make the experience truly brilliant.
