ACTIVITIES & WORKSHOPS

We offer a variety of activities during the school holidays (subject to number and weather conditions). The programme of activities allows our guest to further enjoy the beautiful natural surroundings of Holt Hall. Parents can also relax whilst their little ones are entertained by our experienced nature and art leaders or all join one of our family activity days.

Wednesday and Friday Pizza Nights

Monday Asian food Night (16th August Introducing vegan food night)

All during School holidays* from 5.30pm to 8pm

 

Open to all campers and taking place on Mondays, Wednesdays and Friday evenings in the school holidays in the summer months.

On our pizza making activity, campers get to build their own pizza and watch it bake in our earth ovens. Our Asian food night is hosted by the lovely, Gam, who makes delicious authentic Asian food for the western palate. 

It's a great way to get to know your fellow campers before you gather around the communal campfire for the evening. Bliss!

You can reserve a place for the food nights by sending us an email or text with the number of people wanting to join in. Occasionally we have to cancel the food nights due to the weather or numbers.
