Intrepidus Week: Campfires and Camping out at Stroud School

We are enjoying a week of bushcraft activities and camping out as part of our “Intrepidus Week”: a week of exciting activities to develop resilience, collaboration and curiosity for its pupils!

Set in the our 22 acres of grounds, the week’s unique timetable consists of gardening, pond dipping, mini-bug hunting, country dancing, drama, nature walks, cookery, Forest School, swimming, as well as bushcraft activities and camping out overnight!

It is a week of bravery, challenges and enjoyment – our children will get to try new things and have a go at everything!

The school motto, In Aeternum Intrepidus (Forever Undaunted), has inspired us to create a week that pushes our children outside their comfort zone and into a world of curiosity, teamwork, being in nature and having as much fun as possible.

The Summer Term is usually a chance for children to enjoy trips and residentials. With this in mind, we invited Campfire Wild Adventures to join us for this week and spend a day and night with each school bubble within the school grounds. The camp includes a range of bushcraft activities, teamwork opportunities and the chance for the children to cook their own food over a campfire they have made themselves! Rumour has it there have been marshmallows, hot chocolate and singing round the campfire!

This is a wonderful opportunity for all children in Years 3 to 8 to enjoy some independence and experience the excitement of staying away from home, albeit in the familiarity of the school grounds.

All of the activities will be undertaken in bubbles with appropriate Covid precautions, in line with government guidelines at the time. Please visit us to see Stroud in Action. Visit www.stroud-kes.org.uk or call 01794 513231 to book your tour.
