Camp Hill For Education


Outdoor Outcome Led Experiences for Schools, Universities and Youth Groups 


About Camp Hill

The Camp Hill Estate based in the heart of North Yorkshire spans across 300 acres of countryside, although rural and secluded, we are based just 5 minutes off the A1. Over the past two decades Camp Hill Estate has built a reputation for delivering fun in a thrilling, creative and inventive way for all its audiences.



The Estate now owned by the Ropner Family, welcomes primary, secondary, university and youth groups to come and embrace the outdoors for both learning days and residential visits.




Outdoor Learning at Camp Hill

Since its inception as an outdoor learning centre, Camp Hill has worked to ensure all young people attending the site don’t just arrive for a fun trip away from school or college.  We strive to provide safe, and enjoyable learning for every young person, throughout their entire visit.

We pride ourselves on creating a programme unlike any other outdoor activity centre, by tailoring each and every programme to the aims and objectives of your group.  It is primarily important for us that your residential visit is not just a series of independent activity sessions, similar to that often offered by other outdoor activity providers. We aim to create an all-encompassing programme whereby every young person goes on a journey of activities that progressively develops their aims and objectives.

Why Camp Hill?

Over 20 years of experience of delivering fun, challenging and outcome led activities, breaking down the barriers of formal class room environments and allowing the group to bond and develop life skills with memorable experience and fun outdoors!

The Bunk Barn Lodge accommodation located in the centre of the Estate, easily accessible, yet far enough away to feel totally isolated surrounded by woodland and parklands. Made up of 3 Bunk Barns with a Central Log Cabin, they can sleep a total of 40 people.  With an outside covered terrace BBQ and fire pit to toast marshmallows on! 

Or Team Camp, your very own bell tent village! Glamping in style with a real team feel, with a campfire, stories and star gazing. Our standing camp accommodates up to 192 young people and 26 accompanying staff, and has fully accessible toilets and showers and a large group Safari tent and marquee, for group use and dining.
