Big camp out weekend
Friday 30th - Sat 31st July 2021
Manor Farm Camp out!
This year our camp is open to boys and girls aged between 8 - 13 years at a cost of £95 per child. Camp will run from 9am Friday 30th July until 3pm Saturday 31st July. All food is provided including dinner cooked on the campfire! Our experienced staff team of camp out veterans will be fired up ready to deliver an action packed two days and as always our night shift crew will arrive fresh at 10pm Friday night to man the camp while everyone sleeps and be ready to support any night time needs.
All profits from our 2021 camp out will be donated to our JustGiving campaign to raise funds to purchase resources for Wickselm House Learning Centre, supporting vulnerable young children in Gloucestershire.

Please be aware spaces are very limited!
Upon arrival everyone will be shown to their tents by Hannah and the gang. Once belongings are stowed, we will get to know each other and decorate a wood cookie with our name.
Once everyone has settled in, we will waste no time in visiting the animals and filming our adventures along the way with the camp GoPro. We'll cuddle a guinea pig, groom a horse and even wash a tortoise!
Our theme this week is water week so make sure you have packed your swimmers because we'll be enjoying water slides, water pistol battles, watery obstacle courses and more.
Time for lunch! There will be a big spread of yummy fresh food and everyone can build their own roll from a choice of fillings. After food there will be a chance to chill out on a hay bale, pond dip, ride the zip wire or relax the tents with friends.
After lunch we will turn our water attention to the animals, washing ponies and guinea pigs, cleaning troughs and even trying a water bucket and water tray handy pony challenge.
Later in the afternoon we will enjoy water themed art, marbling and tie dying creations to take home and treasure.
Now it's time to work together and build a giant camp fire ready to roast jacket potatoes for dinner, and of course we'll wash them down with hot chocolate and marshmallows!
After dinner we will get busy putting all of the animals to bed.
Time for our ever popular hay bale disco to get rid of any pre-bedtime energy!
Time to brush teeth and get those pjs on!
Before sleep time we will take a stroll to the back of the field and observe the dusk wildlife and soundscape.
Time to snuggle down.
As always our dedicated male and female night shift staff will arrive to make sure everyone has settled in and keep an eye on the camp through the night.
Some early birds may be up before now, but our experience is, following an exciting, later night than most children are used to, they appreciate a little lie in. For the extra early birds there are plenty of jobs to keep them busy.
Time to visit the hens to collect eggs for our giant farm fry up!
Now we'll get washed and dressed and get busy feeding and mucking out all of the animals.
And relax..time for a snack and to chill out with friends. Some children might decide to pop back to their tent for a siesta.
Lunchtime! By now we all know the drill and everyone can help themselves to the spread of healthy foods.
Now we will enjoy some old favourite games from rounders to blink murder, chaos tag and hide and seek.
We will all help pack up and tidy down the campsite and say farewell for another year!
