Incorporating your pupils first night away, our 2-day Twilight residential is suitable for years 1-4 and an ideal introduction to residential experiences. During their visit, pupils will learn about shelters, fire lighting techniques and camp cooking over an open fire.
To round off the first day, pupils will participate in either a night walk, sing songs by campfire, or learn drumming skills before retiring to the dormitories for a peaceful night’s sleep. Using nature’s bounty, pupils will also craft a keepsake to take away with them.
Twilight Explorer is available from 1st November to 30th April.

After dark pupils may take part in either an African drumming workshop, a night walk by torch light or recount stories and sing songs around the campfire.
