We create an informative, safe and fun learning environment with a range of outdoor challenges, whilst acheieving the aims of the National Curriculum. Our aim is to create an all-encompassing programme whereby every young person goes on a journey of activities that progressively develops their individual aims and objectives.

Brand new in 2020 is our Camp Kestrel Village, with awesome bell tents set out in a spacious yet self-contained location, which gives a beautiful community feel with fire pit and fully lit by festoon lighting. Neighbouring the site we have our large sports field, Safari dining room and multi-use space, brand new toilet and shower facilities and teachers cabin.

In addition to Camp Kestrel, we also have our woodland lodge group cabins, allowing year-round residential visits for groups of up to 40 young people.
We offer a wide range of activities tailored to suit the needs of your visit, which can include:
At the heart of everything we do at Camp Hill we focus on sustainability and the environment, we want young people to leave Camp Hill feeling the same!
Included within every residential visit is the opportunity for young people to engage with the environment and better understand how they can have a positive effect on it. During their visit they may get the opportunity to plant a tree in our woodland, build an animal habitat, take a wildlife walk, or even plant some seedlings in our walled kitchen garden to help feed young people who visit in future.
We are a family-owned country estate working to create engaging and enjoyable programs for young people to come and experience the North Yorkshire countryside, whilst learning about themselves and the world around them.
