COULD YOU BE AS ACCURATE AS KATNISS AT AIMING IN THE ARENA?
CAN YOU CAMOUFLAGE YOURSELF LIKE PEETA?
HOW WOULD YOU OVERTHROW THE CAPITOL?
A unique and magical time in nature, far from computer screens, gaming and mobile phones; the teenagers have a fantastic time learning new skills through adventure, fun and teamwork and making new friends. Immersed in the wild woods we offer a truly amazing and unforgettable experience and for that reason participants come back year after year! We offer 2 camps:
Hunger Games camp – Aug 8-12: Train in the skills you’ll need in the Arena. Win sponsors. Make allies. Run from the Cornucopia into the Arena and spend 2 days in a pair tracking, stalking and ambushing other Tributes with paint Nerf Guns whilst making fires, sleeping in shelters and hoping to become Victors.
Mockingjay camp – Aug 15-19: Join the Rebellion with other ex-Tributes in the Mockingjay camp. Commanders from District 13 will train and prepare you for the invasion of the Capitol. Your mission is then to overthrow the Capitol guarded by peacekeepers, capture prisoners, storm the armoury, and food stores, set booby traps and take out President Snow.
Most first timers do the Hunger Games camp first. However children are welcome and able to join either if the dates work better. Many children come alone – they do not need to be accompanied – and we pair them up with another during the camp. Both camps events take place at a private site near Bristol Airport.
Due changes in systems we are not yet open for bookings for 2024 however please check back mid November for an update.
