Our summer camping residentials are based at Hobbs Hill in the High Weald National Landscape (Kent). Hobbs Hill is a private camping field surrounded by ancient woodland and stunning views of rolling hills.

We’re here to help you find what’s best for you.

There are multiple ways that you can get in touch with us, please feel free to choose whatever you’d prefer.

We can cater to almost any situation, and there’s no obligation to book once you’ve spoken with us.

Every summer term we run camping experiences for year 4, year 5 and year 6 classes. Classes sleep in comfortable bell tents, cook food on the campfire, and explore the surrounding beautiful ancient woodlands. 1, 2 or 3 night camps are available.

Hobbs Hill is accessible from London by train (under an hour from London Bridge to Cowden Station) or by coach (two hours from North/East London). We encourage all classes to use the train as the more sustainable option.

TGC provides all camping equipment, waterproofs and wellies, food, activity resources, and a thorough risk assessment. Our team of L3 Forest School facilitators are trained in trauma-informed practice and work collaboratively with the school staff to provide activities that focus on meeting the individual children’s needs. Children will have a chance to try out an engaging range of activities including fire lighting, den building, whittling, woodland games, natural art, wildlife ID and more! We prioritise supporting children’s wellbeing and building resilience, teamwork and communication skills through nature connection activities.

The cost of TGC residentials is highly subsidised for schools because of the fundraising TGC does but we know that cost can still be a barrier for some schools so can recommend funds that the school can apply for to help with the costs further if needed.

I didn’t think camping would be fun so I never came before. Then I rolled down the hill and I realised oh this is fun! I wish we could camp everyday”
