What we offer on a school trip
Carymoor Environmental Education Centre's unique location next to a working landfill site in east Somerset is the perfect place to bring green issues to life for your class. We have safe access to the landfill site all year round, providing first hand experiences of waste management and recycling.
It is also the perfect backdrop for learning about more sustainable lifestyle choices and the importance of the 3 Rs (Reduce, Reuse and Recycle). As well as this our beautiful nature reserve (uniquely situated on top of capped landfilled land), replica shanty town, wild flower garden, Celtic roundhouse, forest school area and sustainable buildings provide the opportunity for a wide variety of cross-curricular, hands-on outdoor learning experiences. Our education work links to a variety of topics including materials, sustainability, global citizenship, renewable energy, habitats, Celtic life, bush-craft, natural crafts and more.
We cater for Early Years, Primary and Secondary aged groups as well as further and higher education groups. All activities can be tailored to suit your specific needs and learning objectives.
As well as providing inspirational day visits at Carymoor, our experienced team can also bring the wonder and excitement of Carymoor into your school, through a range of assemblies, cross-curricular workshops and project days, all tailored to your needs. Our fun outreach sessions link to themes such as the 3Rs, composting, sustainable living, energy saving and renewable energy, habitats and attracting wildlife to your school grounds. They are a great way to add ‘wow’ factor to a topic or eco week!
If your school is within 20 miles of Carymoor we can also run our action-packed afterschool club for you, combining fun activities linked to the Eco Schools topics (Biodiversity, School Grounds, Transport, Water, Energy, Waste, Litter, Global Perspective, and Healthy Living). The club runs for six 1 hour sessions per half term and can accommodate up to 20 children. Please contact us for further details and current charges.
