Hedge-U-cation will hold our annual, week long family camp during the Spring 2018 half term break. The Family Camp is held the lush Devon countryside, near Exbourne. We are in a beautiful 25 acre field, with woods including some magnificent old oak trees, and a stunning river.

We run five days of activities and workshops for all ages. At the end of the week there will be a Fire Ceremony. This is followed by our very special Friday Night Cabaret and the Hedge Fest weekend celebration, with music, dance and performances created through the weeks activities. There will be live entertainment, bands and DJs performing on the Friday and Saturday night, and a local ale and cider bar.
The dates for the Hedge-U-cation Family Camp 2018 are Monday May 28th to Sunday June 3rd 2018.
The Hedge-U-cation July Weekender
We have introduced another event to the Hedge-U-cation calendar, the Hedge-U-cation Weekender! This year, the Hedge-U-cation Weekender takes place in July, at Crab Apple Farm in Shropshire.
All Hedge-U-cation events are run on a not-for-profit basis, and all ticket sales go back into the Hedge-U-cation camp. The Hedge-U-cation ethos is all about skill sharing and creating a space to learn new skills, which can be developed over the week. Confidence can be built, and self esteem raised, through being part of the camp. Where possible we use recycled materials and are powered using alternative energy sources.
The heart of Hedge-U-cation
We believe that being in nature and learning in the outdoor environment gives us opportunities to therapeutically and educationally improve our mental and physical well-being, build stronger communities, improve on existing skills and learn new skills.
