Tented, catered outdoor centre sleeping 300 with activities near Marlow, for school or corporate groups or fun weekends

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Operation Encounter, Marlow, Buckinghamshire, sleeps 10-300 in 40 bedrooms.

Site open April to October inclusive.

Operation Encounter is an established outdoor activity centre with a fully equipped campsite. Located in a 15 acre field next to a 12 acre lake and 2 wooded areas, the site is near Marlow in Buckinghamshire, close to major roads and stations and under an hour from central London. We are 5 minutes from the centre of Marlow with a wide range of shops, restaurants and bars plus the River Thames nearby.

We work with corporate groups, school and youth groups and groups of friends away for a fun weekend.

Our group accommodation comprises 40 bell tents that can each comfortably sleep up to 8 people. We also have smaller 2 person dome tents if preferred. We can cater for very large groups of 300 people or more.

There are 3 camping sections, each has its own space, and there are many ‘outdoor classrooms’ to give everyone a breakout/gathering space if they would like. Each of the 10 outdoor classrooms is able to accommodate 30/40 people at one time.

A woodland area includes canopies where you can sit around a campfire and unwind. There are additional canopies with seating in various locations which you can use, plus a huge marquee for meals and activities.

On the campsite are hot showers and toilets, each in individual units for complete privacy. Sinks are located just outside these in the open air and have cold running water.

Meals can be provided – we have professional catering facilities on the campsite and a full-time chef. Most dietary requirements and allergies can be catered for.

To minimise our impact on the land we are ‘off-grid’ – our water comes from a bore hole and the majority of our power comes from the sun.

As well as accommodation we can provide a wide range of outdoor adventurous activities including canoeing, raft building, bush craft, team building challenges, obstacle course, archery, axe-throwing, orienteering, high/low ropes and a climbing wall. These are facilitated by experienced outdoor and ex-military instructors who ensure you are safe whilst having fun!
