Summer Camp Adcote School

Adcote School 2022 Summer Camps

Posted: 13th June 2022

Adcote School is hosting a series of summer camps with a difference, for both girls and boys, aged 7 to 12, during the coming school holidays.

The weekly day camps, running from Monday 11th July through to Friday 19th August, pack in activities ranging from outdoor adventure, sport and day trips to arts, crafts, drama and more.

Each day the camp will not only give youngsters the chance to have fun and engage with a broad range of new experiences, but challenge themselves, learn and develop new skills.

Adventure activities include kayaking, forests skills, nature hunts, afternoon and day trips, raft-building, an obstacle course, competitions, team challenges and sport-based activities to suit all abilities.  

Youngsters can also fire up their creativity and imagination with drama sessions, art and handcrafts. ‘Trash and Show’, for example, is a fashion show with a difference where youngsters put their upcycling hats on to create imaginative outfits from items that would normally be thrown away.

Then there are ‘edutainment’ activities, exploring fascinating fun science facts with entertaining hands-on experiments.

The activities, led by experienced teachers, camp leaders and qualified instructors, are designed to promote teamwork and independence and build communication skills, confidence and resilience. They tap into the specialist knowledge, skills and experience of Adcote’s unique, national award-winning personal development programme, CLEAR Learning. 

The camps are set within the picturesque grounds and school buildings of Adcote Hall, at Little Ness, near Shrewsbury, an Arts & Crafts mansion and former stately home, surrounded by rolling Shropshire countryside.

“It’s going to be busy, fast-paced, challenging and fun, and there are plenty of opportunities to make new friends,” said camp leader Delfino Taboada.

“After the last two years, we want children to have meaningful, real-life experiences that include lots of face-to-face interaction, teamwork and games.”

One of the all-inclusive day trips is a visit to Love2Stay, in Shrewsbury, where youngsters will take part in exhilarating activities including water sports, raft-building, an army-style assault course as well as enjoy the centre’s adventure playground.

Other inclusive trips include a visit to the British Ironwork Centre, near Oswestry, and a trek up to Rodney’s Pillar on Breidden Hill. 

Breakfast and lunch are included in all day camps which start at 8.30am and finish at 5.30pm. The weekly camps run from Monday to Friday, with start dates on 11th July, 18th July, 1st August, 8th August and 15th August.
