Outdoor Learning

Essential to any child’s education is a series of quality, planned, outdoor experiences. Stanford Scout Campsite is aware of this and to improve facilities for outdoor learning has installed key facilities to assist teaching requirements. Learning outside the classroom builds children’s confidence and can transform their relationships with teachers.

Set in 28 acres of ancient woodland formerly known as Pease Pottage Forest, recent additions to the site include a new campfire circle, altar fires, outdoor blackboard & benches, and a BT wifi hotspot.

This in addition to flushing toilets and hot showers provide an excellent base away from the school to promote learning in a practical manner away from academia while ensuring the welfare of those taking part.

One significant change is in and around the main hut we have BT wifi access and our new upgraded toilet block with disabled facilities is now open.  The Chapel has had significant work done to it and now has fencing surrounding it, memorial benches on raised decking, planters and new turf.

For larger activities or awaydays we also have a training centre that can offer even more scope.
