Fancy a night under canvas? If you would like your group to spend a few days at the Centre and sleep in tents, then we can provide camping facilities for you to do this.

LOPC provide you with the flexibility to use our Centre’s facilities at a time that best suits you, this may be for a single night or over a whole weekend. Your residential time at LOPC can be based around a variety of activity experiences that challenge your young people in a safe and controlled environment.

Our 15 Acre site provides the perfect opportunity for an overnight stay. We have a designated camping field which provides an ideal sheltered pitch, with hedgerows on every side. Any groups who choose to camp will have overnight access to our toilets, showers and changing room facilities as well as our outside sinks which are ideal for hand washing, teeth brushing and getting the kids to do the washing up.

A 32 Amp electric standpoint is also available, please ask for details at the time of booking.

Tents

We have a range of tents that are available to hire, pitched for you by our staff ready for you to move in. Alternatively guests are more than welcome to bring their own tents.

We have 6 Icelandic II tents, sleeping 8-10 people each and 2 Stormhaven tents, sleeping 6 people each. In addition to this we have a range of lightweight tents to sleep from 2 to 8 people.
