STUDLAND BAY SUMMER CAMP
Friday 14 - Friday 21 July 2017
Now in its 18th year, this is a small and informal camp for Home Educating families.
We generally have between 10 and 15 families, and people are encouraged to come for the whole week if possible. Many of these families have been coming for years, but we also always welcome newcomers. We have children of all ages – pre-school to post-school; some are even second-generation Home Edders.
There is very little organized activity, but we do a lot of things as a group. Most mornings we gather together for some singing and to talk about ideas for the day. In the typical week we will have at least two trips to the sea altogether, and some bike rides and/or walks in smaller groups. We also always have a shared meal on one of the evenings. Once it is dark we build a fire, and more often than not guitars come out and there is some jamming.
To give an idea of the location:
A wild and beautiful area of pine forest and lowland heath
4 miles to the sea, dunes and bird sanctuary
Dorset steam railway nearby to the beach at Swanage
Corfe castle (of Famous Five fame) nearby
Cycleways and paths through the woods to the sea
Camping in a large field backed by pine woods and nearby stream
Access to facilities at adjoining campsite
We bring an events shelter
You bring bikes, drums, instruments
If the idea of hanging out with fellow Home Edders in a pretty laid-back way appeals to you, then this Camp will probably suit you. Do contact either Adrian or Vicky on firstname.lastname@example.org and we can give you some more information and tell you how to go about booking.
With teaching experience in primary and secondary settings among our staff, myself included, as a company we are passionate about offering affordable education opportunities to those whose circumstances may require variety and flexibility, such as those following a Home Education path.
Free kits are no longer available to home educators due to funding restrictions, but you can still download the project's support resources for free, including a wall chart, information leaflet, 'time track tractor', and potato journal.
