Thank you! Springhill have had a brilliant week. Children had a great time – lots preferred camping! Thank you again for another super week. Special thanks to Henry and Sean who really looked after us – staff as well as children!
An incredible time
We have had an incredible time. A colleague who’d not been here before asked if it’s always this good – YES! The staff are all amazing and take care to learn the different children and their needs. The programme offers a great variety of activities and allows children of all abilities the opportunity to succeed and discover new skills.

Following a storm in winter 22/23, some fallen trees destabilised the supporting bank at the end of our lake which was subsequently washed away, resulting in the lake being out of action for the 2023 season. All of our water activities were delivered in 2023 on the tidal River Hamble, where we are restricted by available tides. Our aim is to reinstate the lake for use in 2024 subject to costs and we will update with further news in the near future.
