Hippocampus is our summer project for younger kids, from the age of 6, and those who would prefer to go on a non-residential project. Each week we take around 15 children although they don’t stay on site – we pick them up from home each morning and drop them off in the evening.

Mornings are spent playing with other children and helpers on site. We have a large sports hall for active games but kids can also take part in craft, face painting, Lego, cake decorating or just having a quiet chat.

DSC00227We normally have lunch in a local park before heading offsite for more activities. Visits include swimming, farm visits, maize maze, horse riding and trips to nearby beaches.

The smaller number of children compared to our Residential Project means that the kids benefit from lots of helper attention which they really enjoy.
