School Trips at Really Wild School Camps
Really Wild Education
"If you can survive and thrive in the wild, then you can learn to do so in your school , home and personal life too!" We use nature to inspire learning in the most powerful of ways, in and out of the classroom.
Students can come for a day or a week. We deliver exciting activities that fit directly into the curriculum to really bring classroom subject matter alive, and we can customise your camp just how you like it.
We have inspiring sites around the country including our beautiful base in East Sussex. Give us a call: we can come to you or you can experience our amazing Tepee village in the woods.
