Get in here and get outdoors! Fed up with four walls? Us too! Join us here in Festina Lente Gardens for our fabulous summer camp, running for either 5 days in July, or 4 days in August. Book soon as each camp is limited to 6 participants!
Our schedule for the camps is full of fun. You’ll do the following:
Biodiversity & Nature Day
Start your day with pony riding or grooming, take time for elevenses, then get out and explore! The gardens are full of flowers and wildlife, the woodland is wild and wonderful, the Sensory Trail engages all your senses, love it and learn loads!
Arts & Crafts Day
Pony riding or grooming to start the day, then fab and funky arts and crafts. Get your creative head on and make some brilliant stuff to take home.
Pony riding or grooming to start the day, and then get into the Garden! Gardens are great fun, and the Gardens at Festina Lente are truly magical. Learn how to help our plants through weeding and deadheading (not as scary as it sounds!), identify beasties (good & bad), sow a cress initial (green letter day?) , make a funky flower pot.
Crafts and Slime Day
Pony riding or grooming to start the day, and then…slime time! Well, we can’t avoid it…because we love it! Homemade playdough and moon sand are great fun too. Learn to be expert at all three!
