PLAN YOUR FAMILY ADVENTURE AT EDEN CAMP THIS SUMMER HOLIDAY, 20 JULY TO 1 SEPTEMBER!

Explore the captivating world of history at Eden Camp with 22 immersive huts, each offering a unique glimpse into the past. Bring the whole family for an unforgettable educational experience filled with engaging activities and interactive workshops that make learning fun for everyone. Discover the sights, sounds, and even the smells of what life was like on both the Home Front and Front Line during the Second World War. Each hut covers aspects such as The Blitz, Rationing, the Home Guard, and more.

FAMILY-FRIENDLY EDUCATIONAL WORKSHOPS

Join the fun with our free, family-friendly educational workshops happening throughout the school holidays! Dive into exciting activities together and make learning a blast for everyone.

PEG PLANES

Every Wednesday: 24 & 31 July, 7, 14, 21 & 28 August
Step into our Eden Camp Arts & Crafts workshop and create your very own Peg Plane to take home! Craft a peg plane from scratch, decorate it to your heart’s content, and once the paint is dry, your plane is ready to fly (or display)! Fly it around or turn it into a fridge magnet—it’s fun for all ages and a great way to get creative while learning about Eden Camp.

WW1 TACK BISCUIT MAKING

Every Thursday: 25 July, 1, 8, 15, 22 & 29 August

Join in the cooking fun and make your own tack biscuits! Discover how WW1 soldiers relied on these long-lasting, albeit not-so-tasty, biscuits during trench warfare. Test your taste buds and see if some Bovril makes them more palatable!

EGGBOX TANKS

Fridays: 26 July, 9 & 23 August

Transform ordinary egg boxes into exciting mini tanks in our children’s craft workshop! Kids will learn to repurpose egg cartons, adding colourful paint, recycled materials, and simple decorations to create unique toy tanks. This hands-on session encourages creativity and environmental awareness through recycling. All materials are provided, and everyone will get to take home their egg box tank masterpiece!

Don’t miss out on this perfect opportunity to combine fun and education this summer at Eden Camp!
