Our Junior holidays for those in Years 6 to 8 are the perfect introduction to Lymington Rushmore.

Whether you want the high speed of Go-karting or Banana boating, a new challenge like Ski-slope ringos or the Aqua park, or a more relaxed time doing Cookery or Arts & crafts, there’s something for everyone at Lymington Rushmore!

2020 holidays

To see what the camps are like, check out our video!

The costs quoted above include full board and all activities. This does not include the cost of travel to and from the holiday. For more information about costs, please contact the office directly.

If the cost of the camp would prevent you from coming please do contact the Holidays Coordinator regarding a bursary. To avoid disruption to groups and activities, we are unable to accept bookings for only part of the holiday.

Between 60 and 70 young people come on each of the holidays drawn from a variety of Independent Schools with which we have links. Do enquire to find out if we have links with a particular school.

There are lots of newcomers on every holiday and we work hard to provide a welcoming and inclusive atmosphere. Each person is part of a small group of boys or girls with two or three Leaders assigned to look after them. Activities are often done together with those in the same small group.

The holidays are led by Rev’d David Reid, assisted by a large team of volunteers including many school teachers and undergraduates.

Our Junior Holidays are held at Sandroyd School, a beautiful countryside setting with lots of venues for activities nearby and not far from the coast.

The food is always a highlight of camp and is provided by our own team of volunteer cooks. There is healthy, home-made food in plentiful supply! We are able to cater for different dietary needs by prior arrangement.
