Camp Kernow 2022

Children in years 3 and 4 have been enjoying life living off grid during their residential at Camp Kernow. For many, staying away from home was a first time experience and all had an amazing time, staying in bell tents, yurts and even an upside down boat with their friends. 

The children enjoyed trying out a range of new experiences, including archery, climbing, lighting fires and natural dyeing.  They also experienced harvesting their own salad and helping to prepare meals in the camp kitchen. 

As Camp Kernow promotes a sustainable way of living, the children were taught about recycling, minimising food waste and the importance of not wasting energy.  They also learnt about how some of the energy we uses increases the carbon in the atmosphere which in turn has a negative impact on our Earth.  As well as learning about how the Camp produces it’s own solar energy, they also worked in groups to make their own wind turbines.

A great time was had by all, and we would like to thank the staff at Camp Kernow, who made this an amazing and educational experience.
