We're sorry you aren't able to come to The Camp Hill Estate at the moment but hope you and your families remain safe and well.
We are working hard behind the scenes preparing to welcome you all back when the time is right. The renovation of our Walled Kitchen Garden is only one of the projects underway to develop the Estate and make it more sustainable, but most exciting is Camp Kestrel. A Bell Tent encampment at the heart of the Estate, planned and to be built specifically with social distancing in mind, Camp Kestrel will emerge from isolation to help us all reconnect with one another and the outdoors.
The team continue to work remotely to answer questions and keep you up to date, please email email@example.com and we will assist you where we can. We would like to thank you all for your continued support through these unprecedented times. Stay safe and we look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

Parent & Teachers Guide 2020
Visit Camp Hill for the day for a truly unforgettable learning outside the classroom experience, focusing on challenging and outcome led activities, breaking down the barriers of formal classroom environments and allowing the group to bond and develop life skills with a memorable experience in the fun outdoors!
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. Camp Kestrel therefore creates a camping-style experience with the support of full facilities.
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.
