Primary Enviromental Education

Epping Forest is home to 50,000 ancient trees making it the perfect location to get outdoors, connect with nature and learn about the climate and ecological crisis. On a visit to Suntrap we hope to equip children with age-appropriate knowledge and experiences to help them to make choices to protect the environment going into the future

Currently our 7 acre site is undergoing major refurbishment reopening in spring 2021. The team is supporting schools to take learning outdoors into their own grounds. Read more here.

Book your pupils for a residential stay (without a deposit) in our amazing new camping pods from April 2021. We are covid secure and look forward to welcoming your pupils as soon as government guidance allows.
