Camp Hawthorns

Through The Hawthorn School’s outstanding facilities and extensive woodlands and grounds we offer a wide variety of activity camps for both pupils and non pupils during the school holidays. Childcare vouchers are accepted for all activity camps.


For 4 to 12 year olds, operating from 8am to 5pm each day of the school holidays. 

Each day is packed full of a huge variety of exciting activities varying from sports, outdoor exploration, arts & crafts to team games and challenges. Whilst no two days are ever the same, with our woodlands, grounds and the on-site swimming pool, we always make sure we fit in some Woodland Games and a Fun Swim. We work with the aim ‘fun for all’, encouraging children to make new friends and try new activities. Our activity timetable is designed to give every child the opportunity to develop cognitively, physically, socially and artistically.
