On The Hill residential programmes for primary and secondary schools seek to empower young people through meaningful project based work in the outdoors, providing a connection to the land, to the natural environment as well as encouraging friendship and social bonds to develop. Work includes food growing, cooking, building and looking after animals on Oxen Park Farm.
We run a range of bespoke programmes, lasting between 5-10 days (see below). Our approach is to offer a unique learning experience, specific to the needs of students, the school curriculum, and the land.
We also offer professional development programmes for teachers.
"Within the inspiring setting of the Teign Valley, our students learned about sustainable food practice, engagement with the land, and developed relationships with each other in a way that simply cannot be replicated in a classroom setting. Jo's passion for the camp's mission and the expertise of his staff are without question, and this ensures a rich and deep learning experience."
