Summer Camps at Airfield Estate
Our summer camps are back and are packed with exciting adventures! This Summer we have five 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.
Explorers Science Camp
On our Explorers Science Camp, our busy campers will spend a week experiencing what it is like to be a scientist, while at the same time, exploring our farm, gardens and natural habitats. Working with our education team, our junior explorers will experiment with crazy concoctions, discover how to make rain resistant shelters, explore concepts of building and construction, and carry out lots of experiments. 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.
