Creating authentic experiences for our children in nature
The basic principle of our camps is essentially that of creating experiences for our children where they can most wholly and truly be themselves.
Every child is precious and has something important to bring to the world, regardless of their apparent challenges.
There are no limits to our creative and social possibilities and potentials
Children’s Summer Camp 2023
22nd July – 1st August 2023
We are sorry to say that the camp is now full and we cannot accept any more applications this year. Sorry for any disappointments.
The camp is open to children aged 8 – 14 years from all backgrounds. Sorry but we cannot take any 15yr olds this year.
We offer reductions for those who cannot afford the full fee. Just let us know if this would be required in your case.
Our 2023 summer camp will once again take place at:
Colin Godman’s Farm, Perryman’s Lane, Furner’s Green, Uckfield, TN22 3RR
Colin Godman’s Farm is in the beautiful Ashdown Forest near Forest Row in Sussex and is managed bio-dynamically with sheep and cattle by Jayne and Michael Duveen. It is 3 hours by car from Stroud. The nearest train station is Haywards Heath (20min). The nearest airport is Gatwick (30min).

Mosaics, kite-making, leatherwork, candles, steam-cars, beadwork, and a sweat-lodge among others. There is no limit to the creative possibilities. Every year we are amazed at the capacity of our helpers and children to come up with new creative ideas in all that they do – and with such community spirit!
“I would like to thank you for all what you have done during these 10 days. The boys are transformed and they can’t stop talking about the camp!! Being so young I think they didn’t just cope and utterly enjoyed the whole experience. The atmosphere and energy in the camp that you created is incredible. Thank you for inspiring them , for bringing such an amazing experience to their lives. It was very special! I am extremely grateful to you and you wonderful team!“Mum 01

“Firstly I just want to say a HUGE thank you. I really appreciated all of the support F received to help him stay at camp. And also B just had the BEST time, she has had nothing but good things to say which is quite unlike her.“Mum 05
“I just wanted to say thank you for the camp and for giving the children such a lovely time. S had a good experience overall and little bits come out here and there and I am getting a bigger picture now, He say’s he would like to go another time so that is encouraging! Thank you for helping with the anxiety of sending him off on his own for the first time, (I think he found it much easier than me) and after talking to a few parents, it sounds like I wasn’t the only one who struggled with it. Having regular updates really helped, thank you for that.“Mum 06
