Family Camps

Family Camps at Trill Farm

Enjoy the good life - connect with nature, your family and the beautiful landscape of Trill Farm.

Although the Spring Family Camp had to be cancelled due to coronavirus restrictions, we are hoping that the Summer Family Camp will be able to go ahead as planned, with activities to take part in and the freedom to wander, explore and dream. Hosted and facilitated by Chris Holland and the Trill Farm team, you will spend time with your kids, explore the farm, woods and nature. Create art, meet the wildlife, cook outdoors, make new friends and be merry. 

The activities include foraging and fire-making, sneaking games and night walks, shelter-building, storytelling and music making around the fire. Other options might include whittling, making herbal products, clay painting or hapa zome. There's a bouldering wall, lake for wild swimming and stream to dam. All this and a celebratory 'merry moot' on the last night! 

Chris Holland is a leading inspiration in the field of nature connection and creative outdoor learning for families. He has a BSc in Environmental Science, and has been involved in outdoor learning for 20 years. Chris has a natural talent for working with groups of people, telling stories, sharing bushcraft skills, foraging and creating environmental art.

He feels very proud because his first book, a playful hands on nature connection guidebook called I love my World, "is a must" according to children's laureate Michael Morpurgo. His latest project, The Natural Musicians is at the creative edge of nature interpretation and musical composition.
