New Forest Junior Summer Camp

Small, intimate centre in a beautiful National Park

A small, intimate location with a capacity of about 90 , the New Forest school offers attractive facilities in an idyllic location perfectly suited to the younger teenager. It is based at a Steiner Waldorf school on the edge of Ringwood, a historic market town and the western gateway to the forest.

Based at Ringwood Waldorf School

Ages 11-17 (*)

Summer 2023


The New Forest is a National Park with approximately 150 square miles of unspoilt, natural beauty. The area is notable for its wildlife: horses, ponies, cows and donkeys that you can actually get close to.
The small size and friendly, rural atmosphere make it an ideal place for a first overseas experience and offers purpose-built classrooms, workshops for arts and crafts activities.

(*) The age range is 11-17. However, we may occasionally accept a younger or older student from the same school year as someone else in the group.
