Summer Camping Residentials... Hobbs Hill in the High Weald AONB (Kent)


Every summer term we run wild camping experiences for Year 5 and Year 6 classes at a beautiful private campsite in the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Classes sleep in comfortable bell tents, cook food on the campfire, and explore the surrounding beautiful ancient woodlands.

Groups will have a chance to try out our range of activities, including fire lighting, den building, whittling, woodland games, natural art, nature walks and much more!

2, 3 or 4 night camps are available. All food and resources are included, sleeping equipment is also provided.

We are now taking bookings for camping for May, June and July 2023.

Our residentials focus on nature connection, Forest School activities, wellbeing, resilience-building, cooking, and holistic child development. 


If you would like to find out about booking one of our heavily subsidised residential camping offers for your class then email our Countryside Manager Millie Darling on

Our Countryside programmes take place in three beautiful locations in the Kent and Sussex countryside.

All locations are a short train ride from London.

All of the locations we work at are incredibly beautiful and tranquil and give children an outstanding immersive countryside experience with time and space to reflect in natural surroundings.

I cannot believe the wealth of experiences that just one day at this fantastic day camp gave our children. Striding back to Shoreham station, with the help of our freshly whittled walking aids, we felt like true outdoor survivors.

Thank you once again TGC for your passion, enthusiasm and commitment to instilling a love of the outdoors and respect for nature in our children. 

From the moment we read the letter from the TGC team aloud to the Year 5 class the excitement and buzz about our 'Survival Adventure' was tangible. For most children, this was their first train ride and delighted cries of awe and wonderment.

“I so appreciate the feeling of space and losing track of time and being so fully immersed in nature” - Assistant Head

Hobbs Hill

We have worked at this beautiful ex-hop-pickers farm for the last eights years thanks to the generosity of a local farming family.

This is TGC’s Base Camp and is operationally at the heart of our Countryside Programmes. Hobbs Hill has welcomed thousands of joyful North-East London children over the years.
