For delegates attending progammes or guests at group activity sessions at the New Forest Outdoor centre we can offer camping.
Tents can be pitched either in the woods or on the lawned areas for groups wishing to stay overnight under canvas. All the necessary camping equipment is provided including tents, sleeping mats, sleeping bags, sleeping bag liners and pillows. This overnight experience is often an important part of a bespoke programme or group session. Delegates can stay one or more nights, depending on the length of their programme. An overnight camp can be very successful when incorporated at the start, with delegates arriving on site early evening. The delegates will enjoy exclusive use of the venue, with the opportunity to relax and unwind together in a unique environment, without intrusion from the hub bub of today's technology and modern life.
In the evening we offer a choice on site of either a self-cook BBQ, cheffed BBQ or paella, hot buffet or we can organise for delivery of a takeaway - Chinese, Indian or pizza. Our curry and quiz night is always popular. Alternatively we can provide a guide for a short evening hike to a local pub or hostel, where delegates can enjoy an evening meal. In the morning you can choose between a self-cook breakfast, which delegates prepare themselves in the camp kitchen using the provided ingredients or we can provide a buffet-style breakfast, including hot bacon or egg baps.
Evenings on site
We can organise evening activities such as night navigation exercises or games and the evening atmosphere is always enhanced by the lighting of the fire in the fire circle. Our licensed Woodland Bar, serving wine, beer, cider and soft drinks can be opened until 11pm and clients can opt for it to be run on either a cash or tab basis. We can provide marshmallows for toasting, hot chocolate and/or hot toddies around the fire.
We have a bush camp in the woods for small groups (under 16) wanting a remote experience. We use our canvas Baker Tents which are designed so that you are able to fall asleep watching the flickering flames of the campfire. This is a hands on camp where we expect the group to join in with the cooking around the campfire. Perfect for groups interested in Bushcraft as well as those wanting a rustic setting for an evening in the woods. There is pleasant composting toilet and even a gas shower.
