Choose from five different sessions
Secret Biome (suitable for years 3-10)
It’s always special exploring the Biomes when they’re shut to the public, especially with a selection of activities designed to create a magical and immersive atmosphere. We tailor this session to your suit your age group. We can sit quietly, listening to frogs and a story, make rainforest music and works or art or simply explore it by moonlight. Unforgettable.
This evening was spent exploring the Rainforest Biome after dark! It was the most incredible experience! Children were fascinated!

Fabulous Flags (suitable for years 3-8)
Get creative, get colourful and maybe a bit messy. This is a brilliant way to encourage groups to bond and creates a masterpiece that they can take home to remind them of their trip to Eden.
Sustainium (suitable for years 4-10)
The Eden quiz/game show extravaganza, drawing on a mix of skills, talents and brain power. We don’t want to be serious or too competitive, but we do love a good quiz. This will appeal to all types and is tailored to suit your age group; there will be brain teasers, practical challenges and a creative twist; pray you don’t get involved in a tie breaker! It will get silly.
Campfire (suitable for years 4-9)
An evening of stories, firecraft and snacks around the fire, based in Eden’s wild Outer Estate. Students will make charcoal and cook popcorn, whilst learning about fire safety and how fire is important to different cultures across the world. There’s the chance to play games and let off steam, or sit quietly, watch the flames and chat with friends in a magical and peaceful setting. Available June/July
Silly Olympics (suitable for years 3-7)
Based in the fields of Eden’s Outer Estate, this session allows teams to try a number of sports and activities they wish were in the Olympics. Teams will need to use their coordination, speed, strength and balance to compete in a number of serious, and not so serious, challenges. Available June/July
Eden Evenings cost £8.40 per pupil, with a minimum charge of £168 per group (includes VAT).

We had a brilliant couple of days with you, the pupils thoroughly enjoyed the activities and learnt so much. The whole experience was simply fantastic and I would recommend the trip wholeheartedly to any school thinking of doing the same.

It really has been a once in a lifetime experience for us all.

...one of the best Y3/4 camps that we have experienced... the children are still singing the chant that Rosie taught them on the way back from the 'Rainforest'!
