Group size – For groups up to around 60 or 2 classes.

Timings/ duration – This can range from overnight micro-adventures (12 hours), to 24 hours camps or multi-day activities.

Location – School grounds, our private woodland.

Over the last few years we have provided camps for local groups and schools wanting a residential experience without having to go to an outdoor activity centre far away. These camps have provided a safe experience as an introduction to Year 5 groups in preparation for their Year 6 residential, or during Covid we have found they filled a gap where a class might have previously gone away.

We can run these sessions on most locations including schools, community group space, or host groups wanting to use our woodland space. We can facilitate complete camps for any referrer, or we can host an event with more school collaboration involved. Activities can include bushcraft and survival skills, team challenges, games, shelter building, fire lighting, woodland crafts and arts, archery and projectiles.

A huge thank you to Martyn and his team at In Our Element for providing a top-quality and highly engaging two-day residential for our Year 6 students – so many happy memories were made. The children loved all of the activities especially archery and playing Task Master! Martyn did a fantastic job of communicating with myself to build and create a very personal and tailored experience for our school. We are already looking forward to having In Our Element host our next residential!”
