School Camps | Lakewood Lodge



Take the hassle out of organising your school trips and camps. We offer one day experiences to 5-day camps and everything in between. We do most things for you except put the students to bed! We organise day and evening activities with trained instructors, provide fantastic meals, challenging activities, an animal interaction and our popular Survival Adventure. We can also organise your buses with a company that gives us extremely great rates, which we then pass onto you. We can offer packages for groups from 20 students up to 132 students.

We know how busy teachers are and we try to make life easier for you. Each camp programme & rotation is specially designed by us depending on your needs and sent to you when final numbers are confirmed. We are very experienced and have been doing this since 1995.

We focus on training the best instructors and after studying camps internationally, we have created exciting cutting-edge teaching activities which focus on developing skills whilst everyone has a lot of fun. The Lakewood Lodge team is extremely passionate about ensuring we deliver an impeccable experience for all visitors and every year they keep coming back for more. We want to work with you to exceed your expectations for a camp at Lakewood Lodge.

At Lakewood Lodge we believe that if you can change one child’s life and beliefs each week, this will help our world.

On booking and the deposit being paid, our Teacher Welcome Pack & RAMS/SOPs is sent to you. Included in there is everything you need to know – adult roster, head teacher camp checklist, what to bring, teacher/parent duties, adult orientation, camp rules as well as lots of other information.

Once you confirm your final numbers, your camp programme and camp rotation will be sent to you for you to advise if any changes are wanted/needed.

For one day experiences, we can offer your school group a fun exciting trip away for the day to experience as many activities as time allows, depending on your numbers. We can also provide lunch and transport if wanted.

Your students will have life long memories of their time at Lakewood Lodge.
