The Oppidan Story
Henry Faber and Walter Kerr set-up Oppidan Education in 2016 to tackle the pressurised, anxiety-driven education market in London and across the U.K. Oppidan Education helps young people fulfil their potential through mentoring programmes, both one-on-one and in schools across the state and independent sectors.
They soon realised there was a gap in the market for a business to run summer camps, inspired by invisible learning and one that encapsulated the US style of summer camps: new friends, the outdoors, adventure and a formative experience growing up. Henry and Walter bought two bell tents and set up camp; in 2016, Oppidan Camps was born. Three years later, you can find us on two different sites: Woodhall Estate in Hertfordshire, and Culden Faw Estate in Henley, where we run camps for both families and state & independent schools, during and outside of term time.
