What will students see and do?
If your children are looking for fun, friendship and experiences to remember in the outdoors, PACCAR Scout Camp may be the school trip venue for you.
Tucked away in the woods, PACCAR is a hub of excitement. Whether you choose to take a day trip or have a residential stay planned, you can pack countless activities into your time there. It is an opportunity for your class to experience things that they can’t in everyday life. 40,000 young visitors a year come and enjoy what the site has to offer.
It’s the scope of activities on offer that makes PACCAR so exciting. Your class will find themselves map reading one hour, then abseiling down a drop the next. From bushcraft to crate stacking, there’s no end of things to do – and each of them offers a new skill for pupils to learn.
