About this Venue

Swanbourne House is a Co-ed Prep School found in a wonderful countryside setting of 55 acres of parkland and woodland.

Our pupils are free to build camps, climb trees and explore the many quirks and curiosities across the site.

We have the squirrel-carved fallen tree, the sunken lawn, the amphitheatre, the Outdoor Learning Classroom and team building stations.

Wildlife that can be seen on the grounds on a daily basis includes red kites, deer, woodpeckers, pheasants and herons (as well as the local cow herd from the nearby farm!).

Being in the woods, making dens, learning bushcraft, sleeping under the stars and enjoying food cooked on the fire are the things great memories are made of.  It also develops team working skills, problem solving, grit, determination and resilience.

Ideal For

Active Adventure camps are for children with a passion for all things outdoors, muddy and adventurous. We generally stay out come rain or shine, so make sure you read the kit list before attending. The camps focus on building children’s independence and relationship with nature and the great outdoors. You can expect most activities to be delivered in the woods or under a tarp. Children will experience cooking on a campfire and introduced to basic bushcraft skills such as whittling and shelter building.

Sample timetable

A flavour of the kind of activities we run at camps in an example timetable...

Oxford Active is excellent. My children find the days are full of fun and pass quickly. Plenty of fresh air and outdoor exercise. They are put in bubbles with their friends and the staff so welcoming!

My 12 year old daughter had a fantastic time at Active Adventure camps, both at Summerfields and Kingham. Activities were challenging and fun. She came home every day buzzing with chat about what they'd been doing and how much fun she'd had.

Ruth Chambers

Our kids had a wonderful week at Active Adventure Camps. They were all smiles every afternoon when we picked them up (and exhausted). They loved the activities and even though it was super cold out they loved being outside. They staff are incredible, friendly and take wonderful care of the kids.
