From this Summer (2020), Summer Fields School will be the new host for our Oxford based Active Camp. Summer Fields School is an independent preparatory day and boarding school set amongst 70 acres of outdoor space, in the heart of Summertown. The Camp features a selection of climbing wall, sports hall, golf course woodland area, playing fields, a swimming pool and much more, which makes it a perfect location for our multi-activity day camps.

This is something we have been looking forward to announce and we want to share with you some of the HUGE benefits from this move.

It is less than 700m (4 minute drive or 15 minute walk). The entrance is just behind Marks and Spencer’s in Summertown high-street. Click here for directions

Cooked Lunch

If that wasn’t enough, we will also be, for the first time ever, able to offer you the option to add a cooked lunch to your booking during the Summer, which will be provided by the schools exceptional catering team.


In previous summers we have regularly had to turn parents in need of care away due to the capacity for the site. This will no longer be a problem as we will have access to considerably more space. The school is over 70 acres!


Summer Fields have a one way in/out car park on site which you will be able to use whilst dropping off and collecting, no need to park on the road anymore.

Active Plus

Our active Plus program is going to be incredible this summer!

Many of you have already experienced our Active Plus activities and trips. We will be running all the activities we currently run at Oxford High and a load more, as the school will be giving us access to some amazing new facilities

Once we’ve moved we will be able to run Climbing using the on-site climbing wall, Active Plus marksmanship which will likely be an offering of both archery and the on-site air rifle range and with direct access to the river we are also looking at Active Plus Kayaking.

Active Adventure

We will also be able to run our Active Adventure Camp at the same location giving you the opportunity to experience both our camps over the summer!

We plan on taking full advantage of the direct river access and the large area of woodlands, giving your children the chance to take on the great outdoors with Active Adventure! Featuring activities such as canoeing, climbing, orienteering, raft building, survival skills, assault courses, and much more!

Please note: Active Adventure Camps are for ages 6 – 14

See you there!

We are all incredibly excited about the move and hope to see you there this coming summer. If you have any queries about the site please just send us a quick email or give us a call. For more photos and info please check out our shiny new Summer Fields page on the Active Camps Website.

Active Camps will be running this Summer at Summerfields School from the 13th July – 28th August

We will be continuing to run Active Camps at Oxford High until the end of May half term.
