Description

Oasis Camel Park is the only park in the UK where you can touch and see close-up the camels and their animal relations. Set in the North Suffolk countryside, if you like animals that are friendly and have been brought up like pets then the Camel Park is the place for you.

Exactly what does your venue offer to educational visits?
We have many signs and information boards around the park detailing all of the animals we have on show, including information on species, habitat, and dietary needs. We also have a small camel museum with many artifacts and information on camels and their history and a separate info barn with history about the other animals at the park. We hold ‘meet a camel’ talks for educational groups which covers evolution, history of camel uses, physiology of the camelid family and a chance pet a live camel!

Why you are you a great place for educational visits?
We specialize in the camel family but we also have a whole host of other animals on site so there are many things to learn about. We offer the chance for our customers to meet different types of animals up close in a supervised environment – not something you will usually get at your standard zoo....

What does a typical educational visit include?
We do usually tailor each visit to the needs of the group as the needs can vary so widely however this visit will usually include a ‘meet a camel’ talk (tailored to the age group), cuddle a pet in the pets barn, a visit to the camel museum, and chance to explore the park and see all the other animals and the play areas!

What group sizes do you cater for?
Group rates start from 10 people and above. We can comfortably accommodate up to 3 coach parties at once. Groups do need to book – see our website for details of group pricing.

Are you happy for children to take photos, video or audio?
Yes

What is your process for booking pre arranged risk assessments?
We have basic school visit risk assessment available upon request. However we would recommend that groups also conduct their own pre visit risk assessments and arrangements can be made to allow a visit to the park to conduct this – please contact us via email.

What is the cost of the visit?
We have a sliding scale depending on numbers – see our website for full details.

Is specific clothing required for the trip?
Not really but we would remind patrons that this is a farm based attraction where they will come into contact with animals. Therefore we would suggest that they consider this when selecting suitable clothing and also check the weather at the time of the visit as the majority of activities are outdoor.

Do you have first aid on site or will the group need to bring a qualified first aider?
Yes however we would recommend that group also consider bringing their own first aider.

Please list facilities available.
Café, Gift shop, Toilets, Hand Wash Facilities, Picnic Areas. We have a selection of small toys and gifts ranging from £1 upwards.

What are your disabled facilities?
We have toilets that can be accessed by disabled visitors and ramps into the buildings. We would remind patrons that we are a farm based attraction with grassed pathways, which can become muddy and/or bumpy in inclement weather.
