Summer Camps at Airfield Estate! 2017

Airfields’ Summer Camps are back and packed to the brim with exciting adventures! Each camp will be hands-on with the campers growing, cooking, eating, exploring, and investigating Airfields’ fields, farm and gardens.

This year, we have four great camps to choose from! The Airfield Experience Camp, Airfield Art Camp, Forest Camp and new this year Young Chefs Camp. Campers will spend their summer days either hunting for mini-beasts, exploring what summer means for the farm, discovering how to make their own notebooks and exploring the vegetable gardens. All camps are active, outdoors and will be an exciting week of getting their hands dirty, their boots muddy and enploring their artistic side.

Full details of the camps and booking information can be found below.

Airfield Experience Camp (5-8 & 8-12 year-olds)

Spending a day in each of the farm, food gardens, ornamental gardens, our nature spaces and a day focused on food, our campers will be immersed in all aspects of Airfield.
Working with our education team, the campers will create seasonal food, as well as learn and participate in what is happening on the farm and gardens that week. They will learn about how the animals are cared for, how the gardens are tended, how nature is hard at work and how we create food from the seasonal produce grown at Airfield.

Airfield Art Camp (5-8 & 8-12 year-olds)

Professional artists will lead and guide our campers on an adventure through Airfield that will lead them to create their own artist’s studio. Using and interacting with all the areas of Airfield from the house to the farm and from the gardens to our nature spaces, the campers will be inspired and challenged to create their own tools with which to create art.

Forest Camp (5-8 & 8-12 year-olds)

Exploring the undergrowth and nature areas of Airfield will mean that these campers will have to learn skills like fort building and foraging in order to create their own Woodland World.
This camp gets deep into Airfield and campers will interact and get hands-on with the forest environment as well as learn how to survive in the wilderness and work with nature to create shelter, food and fun!

Young Chefs Camp (5-8 & 8-12 year-olds)

Our young chefs will practice essential kitchen skills and master the fundamentals of cooking. Kids will cook exquisite dishes using ingredients harvested from our very own food gardens. They will also discover how to grow their food garden, where milk comes from and how to forage through our woodlands.
