At Woodlarks, people with disabilities enjoy the unique experience of camping in a beautiful place, enabled to join in all the simulating activities each week has to offer. Woodlarks offers fun and friendship in a lovely outdoor setting, as it has done since the 1930s. The Trust supplies everything needed for accessible camping, including indoor accommodation and welfare facilities. A heated swimming pool nestling among trees, a trampoline, a zip wire across a valley, BBQ sites, a bird hide and suitable sports equipment ensure that abilities are cherished and disabilities are overcome. More than 400 disabled adults and children camp at Woodlarks over each summer. Their stay varies from a day visit to the inside of a week, the majority spending a full week at the Camp Site. Special Schools and organisations book some weeks, while nine other weeks are open to anyone according to age and interest. These weeks are run and staffed entirely by volunteers, who provide whatever level of care and help anyone may need. The Wisley Foundation has provided funding for a new office accounting system and equipment.
