BIG HILL HOLIDAY CAMP AT PEMBROKE HOUSE SCHOOL, GILGIL

A week full of adventure, new skills, arts & crafts, sports and access to Pembroke House’s amazing facilities in the stunning and safe surrounds of Gilgil (2 hours from Nairobi).  Let your children enjoy making new friends and getting out of the city for a week for some serious adventure.

One week from August 13th – August 19th  – including boarding and all meals

For more information click here

Big Hill is a week of outdoors, fun, sport and activity. A time for children to enjoy themselves and learn at the same time.  Big Hill provides children with a chance to gain confidence through experience, meet and make new friends, develop new skills, challenge themselves through adventure and realise their abilities. The goal is to create an environment where children can experience and learn creativity, cooperation, competence, commitment and confidence, whilst ensuring maximum FUN.

Big Hill camp is a great place for building and developing life skills, such as team building, communication, independence and responsibility, giving children the advantage. We try to offer children the opportunity to try out a few things they wouldn’t normally get to do at home or school supported by an experienced staff.

The week long camp with be based at Pembroke House school and will primarily be an overnight camp with non boarding being an option for those that live near by. Children will use Pembroke’s excellent boarding facilities, a home away from home.  Parents are invited to join on the Saturday night, camp with the children and enjoy a demonstration of their new found skills if they want.

We have two separate boarding houses for girls and boys with dorms of six beds each.  All beds have their own mosquito nets though the Gilgil area is not malarial.  The boarding houses are supervised day and night by professional staff.
