Prehistory Adventure

Immerse Your Class in Prehistory and Sleep in a Roundhouse!

3 Day 2 Night Prehistory school residential trip

Spend the first day learning primitive skills from the Stone Age including flint knapping demonstrations to den building.

Then stay overnight sleeping in one of our amazing roundhouses. We have five new 6m diameter roundhouses that are packed with modern comforts including: radiator heating, WiFi, electricity, lighting, painted insulated floor and walls, each one has a set of soft gym mats to cover the floor so the children have a comfortable night’s sleep in their sleeping bags. We provide guest beds for teachers, so all you need to bring is a sleeping bag and pillow!

After afternoon and evening activities, you can sit down to your delicious BBQ dinner.

Spend the second day as an early Iron Age Farmer, learn fire-lighting and after a second sleepover in the roundhouses, take part in the Warrior Day with clan challenges!

A sample programme

 “Thank you all for the fantastic residential experience you delivered for our children last week. The children have been talking of nothing else since they arrived in school this morning and I know that you have provided them with memories that will stay with them for life. The learning was pitched perfectly and you each had such a lovely manner with the children. The children have remembered the new vocabulary, such as ‘flint knapping’ and I know that they will apply what they learned at Celtic Harmony rest of their lessons. We loved it!”

Brilliant Residentials

School trips with an overnight stay can be life changing experiences for young people.

We are campaigning for Brilliant Residentials to enable more young people to experience more high-quality residentials, which can lead to improved resilience, relationships, achievement and brighter, brilliant futures for young people.

Hands-on education

The Celtic Harmony Prehistory residential trip promoted independence, teamwork, communication and organisation skills gained by simply staying away from home. The excellent leaders, great information, good food and sleeping arrangements combined to create a fantastic experience.
