Suntrap Outdoor learning for all

Outdoor learning in school grounds

Welcome to Suntrap Forest Centre nestled within 7 acres of blissful woodland and buzzing habitats in Epping Forest.

Since 1967 we've welcomed schools (from early years to A level), adults, families and community groups to explore the natural environment under the guidance of our expert staff. 

Suntrap is closed for major refurbishment work, reopening spring 2021. Book your day visit for your pupils to our fantastic new site for summer term 2021 now.

We are taking provisional (no deposit) bookings from schools for our amazing new camping pods for summer term 2021. We hope to welcome your pupils as soon as government guidance allows.

Will your school be taking lessons outdoors due to covid-19? We can help with consultancy and training.

This offer is FREE for all Waltham Forest schools (Due to demand we have extended our offer until December 2020),

Suntrap will continue to monitor the situation with regard to Covid-19 and respond to changes in the Government's guidelines, updating our policy as needed. Read more here.
