Summer Camps at Airfield Estate

Our summer camps are back in 2019 and are packed with exciting adventures! We’ll have four camps for you to choose from, all of which will be hands-on and action-packed, with campers exploring, building, experimenting and investigating Airfield Estate’s fields, farm and gardens. Our education team will guide campers through a very active and exciting week of getting their hands dirty and their boots muddy. Full details of the camps and booking information can be found below.

Children will spend five fun-filled days in the gardens, on the farm and in nature, learning science concepts with hands-on activities that fulfill their natural curiosity.
