"The Countryside Education Trust’s mission is to connect people with the countryside."


On Monday 13th August, 18 Reedham boys and girls, along with helpers Rachel, Neo and Vicky gathered at Clapham Junction eagerly awaiting the coach that would take them off on their Reedham Summer Holiday.


The Countryside Education Trust is located in beautiful Beaulieu.  After a three hour drive, the group arrived and gathered for registration and an orientation session.  With rooms allocated and team building complete, everyone had time to explore and meet a few animals along the way! 

The Reedham Summer Camp offers our young people a chance to experience a fun holiday, designed to engage the children within a nurturing and safe environment.  With the week also focusing on spending time together as a group, in a supportive setting where they can relax, be themselves and chill with friends.

Activity Programme

Team leader, Chris Cappell designed a programme which would cover a number of really fab activities:

  • shelter building
  • picnic at Treehouses
  • orienteering/treasure hunt
  • evening campfires
  • canoeing in the New Forest
  • archery
  • pizza making and an end of week barbecue party! 


Huge thanks to the Children In Need Fund for their amazing continued support and for once again enabling this opportunity for our young people.

A massive thanks to Redmayne Bentley for sponsoring our RCT 2018 sweatshirts which were printed and supplied by Hoodies4Schools, the wonderful team at the CET and of course our hardworking helpers, Rachel, Neo and Vicky!
