From BBC Journalists to Captains in the Marines, Oppidan Camps calls upon the support of varied external partners to add something special to each and every camp.
The idea is simple: children learn from and respond well to professionals. In the past we’ve had workshops with artists, comedians, chefs, coding experts, charity workers, sportspeople and military figures. These workshops complement our own weekly itinerary.
Innovative food company Rude Health worked closely with us throughout 2018. ‘Pimp My Porridge’ workshops proved a huge hit with children learning to build a healthy breakfast of champions.
Cypher runs coding camps across London and has collaborated with Oppidan since 2017. Children have the chance to programme their own drones; we’ve lost the odd one in the woods.
Challenging young people to identify the local and global issues that spark their passion, Oppidan partners with WE Schools that empowers children with the tools to take action.

Captains in the Royal Marines come to put the children through their paces, teaching them about teamwork, honesty, hard work and commitment with a series of obstacles and challenges.
