Young Adventurers at West Runton

This awe-inspiring centre enables Young Adventurers to explore activity-filled surroundings in a friendly community setting.

The main building is a former girls’ boarding school, and all activities are within three minutes’ walk of this hub, giving the centre a friendly campus feel. While it might feel intimate, the 30 acre site is packed full of indoor and outdoor activity facilities.

Intrepid adventurers can enjoy an all-weather activity centre, a go-kart track, indoor pool parties, abseiling, or simply dining outside with new found friends in the alfresco eating area - or even choose to upgrade and join our surf school!

Sweeping cliff top views, beautiful sandy beaches and pine-fringed grounds surround the centre, located in a region boasting wildlife sanctuaries, famous fossils and the biggest skies in the country. Perfectly positioned on the North Norfolk coastline, the site is within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and on a stretch of coast designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest.

Adventure for first time campers and younger guests

At Kingswood Camps, our visitors are put into groups of similar ages, meaning siblings of different ages can meet new friends during the day, but have the reassurance of seeing a familiar face from time to time at meal times and during certain activities.

Whichever location, activity or excursion your child has chosen, we want to ensure that our young visitors are always having fun and are confident to try new challenges. That’s why each camps is split into different age groups; it allows us to tailor our activities to the perfect level for each group.

Each group has a dedicated camp coach, who acts like a big brother or sister to provide friendly support, gentle encouragement, safe supervision and a fair few laughs. It’s all part of ensuring everyone has as much fun as possible with their new friends, backed up by great support from someone who’s looking out for them.

Our summer camps allow young adventurers to spread their wings, make new friends and discover new skills in our ‘home away from home’ atmosphere. The camp coaches who look after our guests are particularly skilled at making sure this age group are having as much fun as possible, whilst feeling looked after, particularly if it’s their first trip away from home. 

We give young people and early teens the opportunity to embrace every aspect of camp life, from sharing dorms to scaling climbing towers, developing valuable life skills and building self-esteem, whilst making new friends from over 75 countries around the world. Our team gently encourage them to push their boundaries and try exciting new adventures. 

Sleeping and eating

At the end of a long day and evening of activities, it’s back to the dorms for a good night’s rest. The dorms at West Runton sleep 2-18 people with shared bathrooms. You’ll share a room with other young people of the same age group and gender.

Although we arrange rooming based on age group, it may be possible to arrange for siblings of the same gender to share a room on request  (this cannot be guaranteed). Please note that it is not possible for brothers and sisters to share a room as all accommodation is split by gender.

In our canteen, we serve three hot meals per day, with lots of choice and seasonal variations. Each day there is a carefully balanced and nutritional meal plan. We can accommodate most special dietary needs, please let us know requirements at the time of booking.
