School Camping in Dorset

Outdoor Activities PLUS Camping for Schools

The stress-free school camp

Join us for an incredible school trip sleeping under canvas in Dorset. Our private campsite overlooks Corfe Castle. It's the perfect base for a school trip full of authentic adventure; coasteering, kayaking, paddle boarding, bushcraft and more. Artificial climbing walls are just not our thing - come and enjoy some REAL adventures with Land & Wave.

Camping with kids - really?

Yes! This is totally stress free for teachers. Your school's own 'bell tent village' will be pitched ready for your arrival. Our spacious tents are big enough for the burliest of teachers to stand up in. The site includes a huge dining marquee, hot showers and even pigs and chickens. Teachers are well looked after with camp beds, mirrors and even a canvas 'staff room' where you can grab a well deserved cuppa.

Day 5

Time for one final adventure. You'll be heading home with amazing tales, weary bodies and incredible achievements.

Beautiful bell tents

We pitch your school a lovely bell tent village at our campsite. Each 5 metre tent accommodates 5 or 6 students and we include roll mats to sleep on. Teacher tents are 4 metres wide and sleep two adults, with oodles of space. Teacher tents include camp beds, rugs, a mirror and a jar of fairylights. Your camp includes an 8 metre 'staff room' tent, which includes a fridge, kettle and deckchairs for your staff team. You'll also have your own drinking water tap, plus an electric point to charge your phones. The campsite also includes a large dining marquee to seat 80, hot showers, plenty of toilets and a toothbrushing station.

Private and secure 

Our lovely private campsite is on a working farm and has spectacular views of Corfe Castle. This gated site is for Land & Wave guests only. It means your children can roam and play as they wish and teachers can be secure in the knowledge they are safe and having a wonderful time. A night manager sleeps onsite every day of the week.
